Nikon 300mm f/2.8 - need a confidence boost

Just bought a used nikon 300mm f/2.8 VR1 version. I shoot on D800. The only lenses in the 300mm range i used so far are 70-200 f/2.8 VR2 and 400mm f/3.5 AIs version. While i am pretty sure i made the right choice for going with 300 f/2.8 i am looking for some additional reasons why this lens is better than nikon or sigma f/2.8 zooms in this range. Basically want a confidence boost from you all telling me that i made a good choice.

EDIT:

The new lens is in the mail, but hasn't shipped in yet, so just trying to make myself feel good about it before i lay my hands on it.

Nikon D800
