Much to the relief of my camera, hands, and my photos, and much to the dismay of my wallet, camera bag, and so on, I have indulged in my desires......for a new lens. I had my 80-200 2.8 AFS for a few months, but it is heavy as hell and harder for me to carry than when I tried the 70-200 VR. And VR will help me a lot when I'm shooting handheld. Although I got some amazing shots handheld with the 80-200, it was chancy. So, just after selling my 80-200, and with my very first credit card screaming in protest, I just bought a 70-200 VR. Now to figure out how to recover enough to buy a 17-55 DX before they release the next camera.
