    My next big purchase is going to be the 70-200 VR2. It's something I have lusted after since I got my first DSLR (It was the VR1 back then). Now that the VR2 has come out, and some issues have risen, I have put off the purchase for a little while. Although I love my 24-70, it just didn't satisfy me.

    I have been watching the lens on B&H and the price has been dropping weekly (almost daily lately). Does anyone know why it keeps dropping in price? It's almost $100 less than last month. I am skeptical to purchase it if it will keep dropping.

    Also, for those of you who already own the VR2, are you getting the common issues still such as the dust/particles inside the barrel? I've reached the limit that internet searches and reviews will provide me.

    Not a expert but exchange fluctuations?

    If you want it get it, don't wait just because you might think save a few dollars

    I'm not waiting to save a few dollars, I am waiting because I just bought the 24-70, a $1500 roof rack for my truck, and a trip to Hawaii at the end of the month for my girlfriends graduation present.

    I was just curious as to why. I am more concerned with Nikon's CQ issues.

    Yeah, sorry. I wrote that in a hurry on my way out the door.

    Nikon's QC worries me. They have had a surprisingly large amount of issues with the VR2. None of which they will fix because they say it's "normal." Hence, I would prefer to purchase one that has none of the issues from the start.

    Did you read Thom Hogan's review of the VR-2 70-200??? It's a must-read.
