Re: Great images, tiny size, fast and accurate focus, no VR issue

I definitely had the issue on a rented 300/4 two years ago on my D7100, so it wasn't just the D800.

While you can certainly get "onion" bokeh out of it under certain circumstances, I find the bokeh overall to be quite pleasing -- better than my 80-400. Is it something that you'll sometimes notice, and will make people who know what they're looking at say "oh, that was taken with a 300/4 PF?" Sure. Does it detract from my ability to make good-looking prints? No -- it's not something like the donut bokeh from a mirror lens.
