    the 300mm f4 is a great lens for anyone looking to not invest a ton

    Just for a little perspective. I bought a brand new 1966 Hemi Dodge Charger for just about 1/4 of what you spent for camera and lenses combined. Granted, it was 46 years ago, but still....

    Unfortunately on most of my trips I do not have mules (on some I do though) ... so my lenses are smaller!

    true, but now a new dodge charger hemi would be 4x

    also a little inflation calculator says $15,000 today = about $2000 in 1966, just crazy huh

    I am sure all the Nikonians will be drooling over this image, but I am having trouble trying to decide if it is nature or wildlife. :lol: :lol:

    yeah, i wanted a vr, but they rarely come up for sale used. and when they do for a good price, they are snatched up quick. also liked saving a few thousand. and its 1 lb lighter. works good for me so far

    You don't have to spend that much money on a lens to get good bird photos. Take a look at what Coastalconn is doing with a 200-500 Tamron and an older 300 f/4. I use a 300 f/4 with a 1.4X TC and I can get some pretty nice bird shots. Granted, you have to have better light and more patience because you need to be closer. Not saying I haven't thought about black market kidney sales to fund one of the big Nikon primes though.....
