I gave in to my desire for the updated 70-300mm for my d750 when it's too much to carry the 80-400mm. It was delivered late this afternoon, and I ran out and snapped a duck visiting my front yard: Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) I really like the size and weight. I still have to try it on the d7200. One question: the manual that came with the lens said the VR should be turned off when turning off the camera or removing the lens. I've never done that. Is this something you guys do?
