Re: Nikon 70-200 f/4 for profesional results?

I'm not sure what your intended use for the lens is, but my feeling is that the f4 lens isn't very good value for money against the 70-200/2.8. Particularly for events, every stop matters because it means that your ISO isn't being over-strained - it's popular with pros for a reason. The weight and size of the 2.8 is what it is for the purpose. I think the f4's expensive for what it is, the Nikon version at any rate.

If you wanted to try an incredible value lens ($100), the old 70-210/4-5.6 AF-D is a great performer. If I needed to do low-light no-flash events, I'd stump up for the 70-200/2.8 and keep it as a lightweight alternative.
