Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens:
I purchased this lens to replace the original 80-200 mm f/2.8 ED AF lens. I am a sports photographer and find that using a monopod isn't always feasible, especially when shooting alpine ski racing. The VR II lens enables me to shoot without one. I would encourage anyone to bite the bullet and go for the upgrade. The quality of the images is superior to any other lens I have owned!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Costly but one of the best Nikon lens

I need to take soccer action shots at HS games and by the time Varsity starts it is dark and most of the light is from the stadium lights. I needed a fast and accurate lens, this fits the bill perfectly.

About Me Semi Pro Photographer
I really really wanted this lens last year, but I needed to replace my 3rd party 24-70 2.8 so I opted to purchase the Nikkor 24-70 2.8 (Incredible in its own right) before acquiring my 70-200 2.8 VRII. (Both Purchased here)I am using my new lens with my D300 (Not "S")which was also purchased here. Man oh man is this lens great. Very fast to focus, quiet, the VRII is fantastic and it is as sharp as a scalpel. I also like the new M/A switch making the autofocus secondary manual focus.It is a hefty beast. That being said, it is very well balanced and easy to handle making it a non issue for me. It is a testament to the build quality and materials used to create such a fine product. Nikon has a real winner here...
Excellent upgrade from VRI

The lens nirvana

Wonderful tele zoom for full frame Nikon DSLRS. No more vignetting like the older version. VRII gives you amazing image quality in low shutter speed.
