I was just wondering if I should buy it now. It seems like it's still using the VR I and I was curious if anybody knew if a VR II version would be released in the (near?) future.

I doubt they'll be upgrading it any time soon. There's alot of other lenses in the line up that need upgrading first. And the lens is already amazing.

The 105 mm f/2.8 is labeled VR, but I think it's the second generation VR (equivalent to other VRII)

Not the VR on lenses is labeled with II but the lens is labeled II.

Examples: 70-200, 18-200, 200-400 are the 2nd version of the lens.

But the 105, 16-85 and the long ones have VR 2, but are the first version of the lens.

One of my favorite lens. Not much to improve on except VR which I almost never use for macro /close up work. This is probably my only lens that I use exclusively on tripod, VR off and manual focus.
