Re: There are many versions of the Nikon VR system

The VR or VR II label on the lens or if it is in red or gold has nothing to do with the VR version in the lens.

The 70-300 VR has always the second VR version (it was the first lens that received the second VR version).

18-200 VR and 18-200 VR II have both the second VR version (both were introduced after the 70-300 VR which had already VR II). The "II" in the lens name indicates it is the second version of the lens.

E.g. The "AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR": there is no "II" in the name but that lens has VR II.
