I have the 70-200 VR 2.8 great lens

Since it's always"dark" here I'm hesitating which one to get
A 200 f2 vr with a TC 1.7 or a 300 f2,8 vr
On darker days I won't use the TC,leaves me with a great f2 200 for my four legged baby,with sun mount the TC which brings me more than 300mm

I got the 28 f1.4 and very pleased with it in low light situations.
hence my question

The 200/2 VR is an amazing performer. If you can afford it, there is hardly any better lens to be found.

My dream lens! I could live without all the 85 1.4 in this world for this lens! :D

I've done something with the dreams, so have the 200/2 (manual focus), 200/2 VR AFS, AF 85/1.4 and to complete the picture, the MF 85/1.4. All of which have their own merits. Since I resist the temptation to bring all of them with me simultaneously, there is no conflict here either :)

Strange news about Nikon Pro magazine. I got an assignment from them (through the Swedish Nikon agency, by the way :)) to illustrate what you could achieve with this lens. I did so, in my own way of course, I was interviewed by phone from their UK correspondent, and the article with accompanying images was sent me for proofing. Then, I got a letter from the Editor saying that although the editorial staff and Nikon Europe BV all had given the article thumbs up, there had been "severe" complaints from "higher departments" about the images being unsharp so not showing the 300 VR to its fullest potential, and accordingly, the same higher authority rejected the entire article for printing.

Could you describe the content of the article you saw? it might have been the very one officially rejected by Nikon Japan, which is quite interesting if it eventually went to print.

Hi Bjorn,

It was only a smallish insert which appeared

Hoi Hans,
Surely the 200 / 2.0 is a hunk of a lens. But since you have a 70-200 1:2.8 already, I would think that a 300 / 2.8 would give you a bigger bang for your buck....errrrr ....Euro :)
You will find that the 300 / 2.8 (any version) opens up a great dimension for you.

Groet,

Frits
