300mm F/2.8 VR1 or VR2 for D4/D800

I'm wanted to pick up a 300mm F/2.8 mainly for my hummingbird photography , and I am trying to decide to pickup a used VR! lens at half the cost of a new one. I'll be shooting it with a D4 and D800.

Any vignetting with the older 300mm?

My biggest concern is sharpness and IQ, and the improvements in VR are not that valuable for me.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
