    Some 70-200 VR 1 & VR 2 Comparison shots here

    photos from VRII are brighter and appear slightly sharper/higher contrat (probably due to lighting changed). Bokeh is slightly better on VRII for me.

    what do u bring.... as a guest

    I would take 50mm f1.4 and 24-70 with D200 and a flash It deosn't matter what you bring to the wedding. It's your behavior that matter. I made friends with the paid photographer when I attended a wedding. Remember, the better gear does not indicate you are good at photograph. so why concern???

    Nikon 105 Micro VR vs Zeiss 100mm f2 Makro - Please help me decide

    Ben, beautiful portifolio. Zeiss is F2. If you are confortable with manual focus, I will get Zeiss. I had 105 VR before and I didn't feel it provides much benefit upon 70-200 VR. If I want a prime, I will always pick something faster than 2.8 because nowadays zoom is becoming better and better...

    Accidentally bought a Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG APO Macro for $99.00

    I used to have it. It's a great lens and macro is very usable too. I still have many good photos produced by it.

    Reverse of lens lust

    seems that let go 80-200 get most of vote. I have very steady hand but still find VR is very useful especially shooting slow subject. 105 DC f2 has such unique characters that 200 f2 VR has. Better keep it than regret. I don't need the cash. Too little to have any impact. This weekend I will...

    Reverse of lens lust

    I want to relieve my guilt a little. Too many lens. which one would you let it go if it were your choice. All of them are so great that I want to keep them all. But ... 80-200 AF-D ED (my first Pro lens. Love the old nikon build quality and IQ) 70-200 VR (my only VR lens, love its easy to...

    200 F2 Lens Cover

    funny. I just sold my 200 F2.

    400 f2.8 best bang for the buck?

    I will say 300 VR is better choice. F2.8 is worth of the trouble using TC than 200-400 F4.

    Thom posts his views on the Nikon AFS and Sigma HSM 50mm

    It depends on the sample in Thom's hand. My 2 cents is that one can NOT give an accurate assessment without enough sampling. Failing to have big enough sample makes the opinion MUCH less relevant.

    Showcase Nikon 200mm f/2 VR - Part I

    Here's my first shots. JPG straightly out of D80. No touch. Hand hold. It's so heavy despite I have 300 f2.8. I should have thought twice before buying this beauty :) F2.8 F2.2 F2

    80-200 vs 70-200 vr

    it depends. The wedding ceremony in church sometime is very slow motion. 1/30 will do. I may get rid of my 80-200 and 85 f1.8 if price is right. D700 is calling.

    80-200 vs 70-200 vr

    I will disagree. D70s is a very fine camera serving as a second. I will buy 70-200 first. I have both 70-200 VR and 80-200 ED AF-D. I like them both and keep both. I can hold VR at 1/30 at 200mm to get sharp photo. The 80-200 perform great at outdoor but definite not indoor.

    Based on your experience, which one fair better in IQ particular mated with 70-200VR? I am aware of the light loss. Compare the Nikon 1.7X with Kenko 1.7X, does Nikon has superior IQ? Thank you,

    New Nikon 80-200mm rattles

    The clunk song comes from the rattle of loose "focus group" (80-200 is front focus). It is NOT normal. I had one used copy that rattle and returned it. Now I have a brand new one that absolutely no sound when slight shaked.
