When I was picking up my 2X this afternooon, I happened to ask if they ever got one of those 200 f2 VRs in. Well, they did, and man, oh man, what a mega-beast of a lens! (no, I didn't buy it). If you've ever handled one, it's the fattest, shortest, stubby chunk of a lens you've ever laid eyes on. It weighs 6.4 lbs, and is only about 8in long! It has a 124mm front lens element! (you use a drop-in filter in the back). I want one sooooo bad! Just think, add a TC1.4 and you've got a 280mm f2.8! I'm in truoble, I think.
