Id do the 600 f4 : )

I had the 400 2.8 and felt that the one extra stop, while more useful indoor, didnt do too much outdoor. With the D3 the useful high ISO will negate the extra stop IMO. I do think that the VR is more useful than the extra stop. I wish Nikon would get their heads out of their a$$es and produce a 300 f/4 VR! That lens would be a godsend since the 300 2.8 I use is still too heavy for carrying around. my results with the 70-200 2.8 VR plus the TC 1.7 has given me super sharp results at 5.6! Thats 5.6 340mm on the D3, and VR : ))) its my travel solution and the images are nearly identical to the 300 2.8 at the higher apertures....
Peace, Dave
