and got the 70-200 VR !!
i blame this forum for constantly telling me how great this piece of glass is :tongue:

holy smokes this thing is sharp :biggrin:

the only downside is i'm going to have to sell my 18-200VR and get another bag to carry this baby when it's mounted on my D200

here's a few pics i took over the weekend.. will be posting more shortly in the Sports forum

Great news on your new toy! We just might have to start a TO-70-200VR Club! Looks like you're loving it already.... it will probably become your favourite lens - it's mine. :smile:

This is a great lens to have. I had an used copy which I sold recently to help my finances. But I feel like getting a new one when things start looking up for me.

For me Sommer's Nirvana bag came handy in this situation. :biggrin:

Enjoy.

Glad the bag worked for you, Sam! It's still my favorite. My review of that bag is up on the cambags site...I'm famous :wink:!

Jaleel, welcome to the 70-200vr club. It is a fabulous lens, isn't it! That was the lens that spoiled me on good glass...my bank account hasn't been the same since, lol!

Sommer,
Apart than toppling while sitting at car trunk (which I have fixed using my baby's bathtub), I have no complaints against this bag. While Mx-300 goes for a mini occasions and this bag is my trusty companion. Very useful to lug all my stuff in trails.

Thanks. Got benefited immensely by your trials and tribulations.
