    Went to the GP and took a few shots. I rented a 70-200 VRII for Sunday and bought one on Monday! Let me know what you think, Thanks.

    That's near me, I'll be out that way next week.

    I like #2 the best, followed by #1 then #3. It looks crisp and the colors pop nicely.

    How did you like the 70-200? (Other than the obvious fact that you bought it). Was it fast, easy to carry around, etc? Would you recommend it's worth the price/ where did you purchase it from?

    Josh,
    The lens is big. I have never really had somthing like that on my camera before. I wouldn't say that it hindered my ability to move or operate but it is not like my 55-200 in any way. Unless there was somthing in the way of me and the subject it was in focus every time with rapid quickness. The only negitive that I encountered was that on a few occations when cars were coming directly at me fast I ended up with the front of the car just a little soft.
