I have never used any 70-200 2,8 lens just because of their weight.
Having a look at the new Nikon 70-200 2,8 S for the mirrorless line, i realized that even this lens is almost 1,5 kilo. That means we will never probably see a lightweight 70-200 2,8 lens in the future.
So actually the only option for me is the Nikon 70-200 f/4.(i am not interested in any third party lenses)
My question is:
judging just from its optical quality, would you consider the Nikon 70-200 f/4 a professional lens?
Does its quality match the optical quality of the other 70-200 2,8 Nikon lenses?

70 200 f4 for portraits. It’s a super lens. 70 300 general use. Also excellent. Can’t go wrong. 2.8 too heavy. Try doing a portrait session with it and you’ll see why you need VR!
