    It would proably not be much less than the 70-200 2.8VR, so why bother?

    Yeah, I agree. I can't see the cost being that much different. It's rather expensive to start producing another line of lenses, and I'm not sure what exactly the market would be. I mean, it's an interesting idea. But if it's about the money, why not just go with a Sigma 70-200 f/2.8?

    Yeah, what is the point? If you want a budget lens, get the 70-300 VR or something from Sigma.

    If you're not on a tight budget, then buy a 2.8 and step it down. You don't have to use it wide open :wink:

    holy hell, what an argument this is going to create.

    i'd sign the petition, but it wouldn't help.

    Agreed. Either get a Sigma, or, if you are patient, there are occasionally very good deals on the 80-200 f/2.8 AF-D, which is a fantasic lens (what I had before picking up my 70-200 VR). The focus may not be as fast as the AF-S, but it is plenty quick enough, and the pics are very crisp.

    thats why the 80-200 exist so people can afford a high quality lense for an affordable price. Though I would be happy to sign for them to make a 70-200 at 1.4 or 70-300 2.8 vr that would be tight.

    I was thinking something similar to the canon 70-200 f4L. I did forget about the 80-200 though, which can be had used for about 600 or so, so that kind of mutes the point XD.

    That's exactly what I paid for mine. Used it for a year and a half, and then turned around and sold it on ebay for $650....:lol:

    I would be ecstatic if Nikon released an AF-S 70-200 f/4 VR, and I would sell my 80-200 f/2.8 for it.

    But it's probably not going to happen considering the 80-200 AF-D.
