Questions about the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lens

13 years 7 months ago #5395 by CatherineW
Those that have this, is it worth the money? Currently I have the 18-200mm which has been a great lens, but I want to invest into a better telephoto lens. I have been suggested this was a good lens by the people in the camera store, but then again they do work at the same store and have a financial interest in what I purchase :blink: .

So what do you think about this lens?

Do you have one? If so do you have the VR or VR II?

I don't own one (Canon user), but a good friend of mine has the VR 70-200mm and he loves that lens. I have taken a few photos with the lens myself, and it's a fast and crisp lens. Worth the investment.

I would be curious how this lens would fair up to Canons 70-200?

Thanks for all the replies and messages. I'm just about 100% sure I'm going to get this. Just trying to decide if I want the latest and greatest with the VR II or the older one with VR?
