I just got my Nikkor 70-200/2.8 VR... total snapshots with it yesterday... I'm in love with the clarity - these are straight out of camera, resized with a bicubic sharper. No editing... I'm thrilled! I purposely did these in full sun, looking for problems. My husband plays semi pro football, this is going to be a dream shooting him this year... my cheap 70-300/3.5 is history!
