Stop posting these photos, Don. You're killing me. :biggrin:
I can not STOP!! I think we need a 200-400 VR lusters club.:biggrin: :biggrin:

Look at this one... 400mm @ F4, focus was on the right (in the pic) eye. Image is NOT cropped. 1/8 sec shutter speed!!

ARRRRGH!!! Isn't there something in the Geneva Conventions about this sort of treatment?
I just went to the Doc to get the vaccinations for my next trip to Burma, so I asked if there is a vaccination against lens lust .....

I think such posts should be visible only to members who already have this lens - same is true for the 200/2 VR.

Cheers

Thank you so much, Don

Don,

posts like this are sooooo good to (re)confirm the significant investment owners of this lens had to spent.

Well spent money on one occasion, lot of continous joy .....

No.. :eek: ARGH :mad: I've read this thread :actions1:

Couldn't you write 200-400/4 in the title?

:biggrin:
Yep, what DanielD said!!!! I should have been warned that it was a 200-400 thread! Now I'm frantically looking in my lens closet to see what can go in order to get the funds together for one!

Lisa... that is exactly what I did!! :biggrin: I sold the 300 2.8 AFS II to partially pay for it. It is NOT cheap.:eek: :eek:

Shhh... but I may be done with shopping for lenses for a while. Now I need to sell a few things. :smile:

This is how every lens should be. Amazing stuff. I thought this was the 50 1.4 at first.

Sharp ? YES!!

Here's one handheld wide open -- obviously the dog wasn't groomed for the shot!

Sharpest lens I have including the 17-55, 70-200 or the 300f4. The bokeh is wonderful, too.

I know that lens is like a telescope, but how did you get a picture of my cat?

That's pretty much what I've done to afford mine as well. In fact, I'll be posting some more items in the For Sale thread this week to continue paying down the old credit card!!!

Don, is the cat resting on the Nikon warranty paperwork in the first one? Looks like he/she can't get enough of the 200-400 either :)
