I should have saved my money and bought this first!


I bought a Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 and I didin't like the color and contrast- it was also never tack sharp......got rid of it.....

Then I didn't learn my lesson, I bought a Tamron 70-200mm (no VC) and I learned I could no longer hold my hands steady enough even with proper hand holding techniques.....traded it in and bought a used Nikon 70-200mm VRII in excellent condition with a 2 year warranty.

THIS is the lens I always wanted! Okay, so the price is justified. Color and contrast is great just like all of my other Nikon lenses. With the VRII my images are tack sharp. My oh my, what an incredible lens!
