... not just your jaw! Your arms and bank balance will drop too! Seriously, my friend's 200 F2 VRII is a gem of a lens for short periods of hand holding, otherwise its a tripod / monopod. Its not a very practical lens for travel, panoramas, street, etc but in the right environment it is unmatched!

I borrowed a friend's too. It was like taking pictures with a bowling ball. It's sharp for sure but I've got other sharp Nikkors that I can actually hold for a few minutes.

The 180/2.8D ED-IF is perfect for that.
