It is an excellent lens, but not quite match the 70-200 mm 2.8 VRII. If I don't already have the 2.8 VRII and 70-300 mm VR, this will definitely be one.

There is quite a bit of sample variation with this lens. I tried three copies until I got a good one. And boy is it ever sharp. I find it tack sharp wide open at all focal lengths, corner-to-corner. Easily the best zoom lens I have ever owned.

Although I have never tried it, I find it hard to believe the 70-200 f/2.8 VR2 is much better at equivalent apertures.
