Yes, vignetting is noticeable there wide open, but I crop my images anyway, so it is not an issue. It's a great all around lens for a HS sports photographer. The other day I used it for fathead shot on all the players. Damn, hand holding it on a D700 after 50 kids is a lot of work. I really need to work out to carry through the shots to approximately 70 kids. Yes, if I had know I was going to take fathead shots, I would have used a tripod.

The last price check for a used 70-200 VRI is still around $1400. No?

Thanks everybody, I think you sold me on this lens.
It looks like they're going from $1300 low to $1600 high. Once in a while you can luck out and get one for $1100, but that's rare. I'm watching on ebay.
