Hi Andy, Great to see the sample images. One question: I have listed my 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lens and will be buying the f/4 model. Will I be thrilled, happy, satisfied, mildly disappointed, or what? P.
this is a very subjective question (or more correctly, a highly subjective answer).
Let me try it this way: Versus the 70-200mm/2.8 VR I and all 80-200/2.8 lenses the step is a big one and should lead you to a happy face.
The VR II is in my opinion a fantastic lens which is optically at least as good as the f4. If you are going to change lenses on optical improvement expectation, I would be very concious what to expect will improve.
If you are changing lenses mainly for size and weight reasons, then the f4 is imho one of the best lenses "below" the VR II on the market - and you might probably be very happy.
