    Oh man, the lens just got here, I can't wait for the next few days so I can test this baby out!!!!! its so rugged and well built and heavy! I must admit though I do miss the little gold plate that came with the older version!

    Old one was vignetting on FX sensors, it has a better vibration reduction, reported to be good to a 10th of a second :O, and Nano coating. Everyone whose used it so far has said it's far and above the best 70-200 by any company.

    And is it just me, or does that lens hood look smaller than the old one? Or is the lens just huge? Nikon does seem to be going that direction (i.e. massive 24-70 and 14-24).

    The hood looks kind of dorky on it, it's so short :p


    I'd actually see about getting the 70-200 VRI hood and see if it fits on the new 70-200.
