D7100 owner just bought a 70-200mm f2.8 VRI ... pretty excited

After spending a day at the wildlife preserve and cutting the feet off of many of my wolf shots because they were simply too close for my 300/F4, I decided that I needed something a little wider and shorter for those occasions.

I did the research and found that for DX cameras the new version 70-200 f2.8 has almost no improvements and the old version 1 is virtually identical... The improvements were mostly for FX cameras. Cost difference... VRII with tax is $2400, I got a mint shape barely used VRI for $1000, saved $1400 for almost the same lens. Ask me if I'm a happy camper. Yep!

Cheers,

Rudy
