Two very different types of lens. You buy the 70-200mm to shoot at f4, while the 70-300mm is a consumer grade lens. I sold the 70-300mm long time ago and replaced it with the 70-200mm f2.8 VRI. The 70-200mm f4 loses a stop but much lighter in weight I suspect, 1540 gm vs 850 gm. To reduce overall cost, you can probably buy a generic hood and tripod collar on eBay instead from Nikon. It's the glass that you are buying from Nikon.

I guess you missed the post where I corrected myself.

Thanks! I thought I paid extra. I stand corrected.
