Nikon 200mm f2 + close-up tubes?


I have been offered a very good quality 200mm f2 lens, but already have a 200-400mm for wildlife photography.

I love the idea of very shallow depth of field, and was wondering if anybody has been brave enough to try this lens with close-up tubes (I guess only 3rd party like Kenko would be available)...

Would VR still function with tubes?

I am NOT interested in f22 shots for max depth of field etc. Rather want to go to the other extreme. Would possibly use this with a D800.

Currently my only 'macro' lens is the 200-400, and it gives amazing mood shots with flowers.

Would love to see your results!

God bless,
