So, I have a D70S and I use a non-VR 28-200mm 3.5-5.6G Nikkor lens. It think its great - but maybe I am too easily impressed.

At any rate, I have just ordered a D80 and will doing a Safari next month and I am wondering about whether I should switch to the VR lens. I have not taken a lot of shots at 200mm on my current lens, but when I have I have not been too worried by camera shake.

Here are some pics from out my office window at 20mm with my non-VR lens. Would these be sharper with the VR lens?
