It's been a long time and I've taken a break from photography. Looking to revive my equipment and wanted to 're-add' a 200 f/2 VR lens again. Was looking to purchase one from B&H, but they don't seem to be in stock.

Is this lens still available? Searching on it, I saw references to it being discontinued-I hope that's not true?

Has the lens been in stock anywhere recently? Just looking for info so I can know what to expect as I search to purchase a new lens.




Some used ones:

BHPhoto 200VR

The VR1 is a much better value. I'd snatch this one up

Adorama 200VR

The VR II has minimally better VR and minimally better coatings:

VR vs VR II 200/2

But for the price difference I'd get the VR, not the VR II (The Adorama used one is a steal.)
