I recently acquired a 70-200mm VR .. Never got around to test it ..
Took my kid today to a local zoo .. and used the opportunity to test this lens .. hope you like it ..

Thanks Greg ..
I had to go with the "animal in captivity" theme .. it is a small local zoo and the type of fencing they had (even for bigger animals) was small .. could not get shots without the fence ..
One thing struck me though .. you always need more reach .. even at 200mm (300mm) ..

the "you always need more reach" has never been a truer statement since i got my D3

i was "spoiled" by the crop factor of my D200 (which i still have and never shoot)

i have a very strong hankering for a 400/2.8
but... i will NOT get THAT lens....
