Re: Is VR essential with exotic telephotos?

I'm leaning towards the 500/4 for the reach and weight advantage.

I'm starting to believe I should get the latest lens with VR and avoid the older model for the Nikon service advantage.

Will the 2.0 (TC-20E III) teleconverter result in unusably soft images?
