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

To some people it is beacuse they have been asking for it for ages, but to me it isn't. I tend to use it in good light or on a tripod (or both). The subjects I shoot tend to demand a high shutter speed where VR is of no use anyway, or a tripod. It's rare that I wish it had VR. In fact if they do bring out a new version I suspect I'll stick with the current one (I have the AFS) because it has an aperture ring and that allows me to use it on a Nikon extention tube.
