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

I've shot the 300 f/4 and really like it.  On of the sharpest lens I've shot.  With that being said, I really, really like vr.

For instance, I'm a little bored this afternoon so I decided to sit in the garage, grab a cold beer and see if any birds landed... (it's dreary and raining).

These two below would not be possible without vr.  I'm shooting my 300 2.8 with a 1.7 attached at 1/125 sec.  Not that these are great pics but without vr no way possible to get these. (I was using a monopod).  ISO's are in the 900-1000 range.
