    gotta ask is it any better than the 80-200F2.8??
    pros and cons to this lens would help.
    all so it seams to get good reviews with the use of TCs any one out there have any experance with this lens and the use of TC.
    really would love to get one most of my wildlife shoots are taken on hikes and would love not to have to carrymy trypod around.

    The only main differences is that it's got VR, AF-S, and an extra 10mm on the short end.

    VR does not replace a tripod, It just increases your chances.

    I have this lens and think it is an excellent lens. I do not have any experience with using it with a TC but in general it has not let me down.

    No it isn't better. I did sell my 80-200 and move to the 70-200 in order to get VR, but the image quality is the same. Yes, I think VR is a valuable feature. I have had reasonably good results with the Nikon TC14 and the 80-200. I haven't tried a TC on the 70-200 yet. Perhaps I will today so I won't have to answer that way.
