Congrats Sonya, what a lens, I'm sure you will love it! And I'm sure it was a good value for what it is too!

Sonya, do you have any pics that you have taken with this lens so far? I was so set on getting the 70-200VR but since a do this for fun I just cant seem to pull the trigger $$. I am currently trying to work a deal on a 80-200 f/2.8 AFS which I think will hold me over for some time. My only concern will be when I am in a low light situation, where the VR will come in handy! I look forward to seeing some of your pics from this lens. Thanks

congratulations! i loved my copy, and hated to see it go. the trombone zoom makes it easy to switch between vertical and horizontal orientation, and is much faster to rack from end to end than a zoom ring. if it wasn't for VR, i would still have that lens.

I have only a handful of pics with it so far. I'll try to dig a few out to post. I just couldn't make myself get the 70-200 because it's SO darn expensive, and I don't need the VR for what I'll shoot with it. The push/pull for $400 (like new) or 70-200 for $1600......there was just no more convincing necessary. I'll try to get a few pics up soon.

Sonya, for $400 there really isn't much to think about! I'm still in the talk with a potential seller for the AFS and I believe that I am getting it for a decent price. I will keep you posted. Thanks

Fred, thats a sweet capture. One of the reasons why I want this lens because my nephews are playing sports I would like to give them prints.

After some initial disappointment with the minimum focusing distance and large apertures of my 80-200 push/pull I've been pretty happy. I still may sell it and go for a two ring though...

This was shot with my push/pull a couple days after I bought it:

1/400 f/5.6 ISO 640 D70:
