I agree, that's impressive, you don't own a 2.8 to compare with by chance?

No unfortunately I don't.  I used to have the 70-200 2.8 VR I (wish I still did) back in pre-video days so I couldn't say if it's VR is as effective.  Since I've never seen any 70-200 2.8 VR II or I handheld "tests" on YouTube or Vimeo, I'd asume that the two 70-200 2.8 lenses don't provide the same level of VR smoothness for video.  For still photography Nikon claims 5 stops for the f4 VR version (I think the 2.8 VR II is 4-stops).

But I would be interested to find out as at some point I may buy the f4's bigger brother.  Thanks for watching.
