Are you referring to the rose shot? Make sure you look at the full res file. The flower petal is very sharp, but there is definitely a shallow DOF as one would expect from a long lens.

When I study the hi-Rez rose, it looks razor sharp along the plane of focus.

It's available in the Netherlands, but at a premium price; 1379,00
I'll wait for 6 months until then the 2.8VRII has to do the job. :-)

I just bought an 80-200 2.8, and I think if it doesn't meet my expectations I will get this lens. The 5 stop VR looks really effective.

Mine shipped today from Adorama should be here Monday. I'd like to see a comparison to the 2.8 VR II.

I was called this morning by the local pro shop - they are holding one for me until tomorrow afternoon. I certainly plan on comparing it to my:

70-200/2.8 VR II
80-200/2.8 AFS
70-300 VR
and
200/4 AIS

Mostly at 200mm. I may have to wait three months for a relatively clear/rain-free day here in Seattle though . . . .

Quite a lens quiver you've got there! Shoot between the raindrops!

Just out of curiosity, why do you have so many lenses in that range?

Very good question. The story goes something like:
- Had a 80-200D, but it did not focus well on my D80. Got a screaming deal on a 80-200AFS, sold the D.
- My company needed a 70-200VRII to take some images for a client from a rocking boat and the 80-200AFS would not do..
- Have had the 70-300VR for quite a while, but hardly ever use it these days now that I'm shooting FX.

So the 70-300VR, 80-200AFS, and perhaps the 200/4 AIS need to go. Yes too many.

I'm not afraid to buy lenses to see if they fit with what I do and then either keep them and sell something else, or sell that lens if it doesn't work out.

I'm currently n the stage of needed to thin the herd . . .

Actually thats not bad - do you have a link for that?. First one on ebay here in the UK is 1,300! Very hard to go for the F4 past the F2.8 at that money. But the F4 is one for me.
