Re: Lack of VR in Nikon 300mm f4 - big deal or not?

I have had my 300mm f/4 lens for 6 years or so & I just love it. It is one of Nikons better lenses & for the price I consifer it the best buy in the nikon line up. I shoot mine hand held w/TC 1.4 a lot but if the shutter speeds aren't high enough I use a stout tripod. I have the 400 f2.8 & if I had the 300 f/2.8 I would still keep the 300mm f/4. It is easy to hand hold & has the ability to close focus  which is perfect for small birds & insects & flowers. Terrific lens on DX & FX alike.
