That's still a fair price for the older non-VR lens, so you didn't get off too bad.

Hmm, I disagree with that assertion. I don’t know the current EUR-USD exchange rate, but in Germany the DX 55-200 non-VR currently sells for an average €70 used.

Besides this supposed rip-off, I guess it’s a fine lens. And yes, shooting 200mm unstabilized without a tripod is no magic trickery. I, too, often shoot at 300mm without VR—using a pretty obsolete AF Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G.
