Re: Do I need VR?

I bought this lens for my new D80, but must admit, I felt a little disappointed, not thinking it was as good as my other lenses ( Sigma 28-200 and a Sigma 70-300APO).

I used it for a while to get used to it then did a comparison with the other two.

Well, its better. More contrast, more detail and the VR really does make a difference.

I only use the 70-300 now for Macro shots ( its excellent at that, well, for me it is!)

Should you buy it? yes, and your lucky over there, in the UK, it cost me the equivalent of just over $1000!
