Nikon 300mm 2.8 Question
2

Has anyone shot with both the 300mm F/2.8 IF ED AF with the 8/6 formula & compared to the newest iteration 300mm 2.8 with VR II and 11/8 formula? I own the older version and it's amazing with respect to being extremely sharp but I do notice quite a bit of CA at times (which I think is also related to the lens being much less sure with focus compared with a lens like the 70-200mm 2.8 FL). There's also quite a bit of pincushion distortion. Is the newest VR II version noticably better in the CA & distortion departments?
