My wife is thoroughly confused. "Wow - that's a BIG lens, it must really bring things close!"

Me "Well, yeah, but not as close as this one" (hands over 70-300mm zoom)

"Um, so then why does it cost so much more?"

Me "Well, it's really FAST. But, um, not as fast as this one" (hands her styrofoamy feeling $200 50G)

"So why do you need it?"

Me "Um....I really don't. But you're gonna LOVE the pictures, and it's cheaper than renting the damn thing"

First pictures of her singled out on a busy city sidewalk...."Wow"

Me "Yeah. Wow. This is going to be fun."

I've had the 200/2G VRII for a few months but I guess I was a little intimidated by its size and weight. Anyways, I just started using it. A couple of recent shots with the D3s:

^great shots, Donald, I enjoy all your contributions and your particular style

I'm getting used to my new VR1 - the detail and sharpness it's capable of puts everything else I've owned to complete shame.

I do think they could have designed the focus ring better somehow - it's so fat and sensitive and easy to bump out of focus immediately after you've AF'd on a subject, since it's sort of on a natural resting point for your hand

And another - missed focus on this one a little, it was before I had the -20! dialed in on the D7K. Now it's on a mission nailing focus on anything I point it at

Hey you lucky folks with the chub lens, I was wondering if someone could post a picture of it side by side with other lenses like 70-200 or 24-70 (or just something more 'mainstream' that I could compare it with)

Thanks!

Another shot from the Carnival in Venice the other day. BTW, I also had many people stop and ask what kind of lens I was carrying...chubby attracts a lot of attention!

LL Like the last one. It's not technically perfect but the look is natural with a very nice feeling. Well done

Thank you very much. I'm sure of only one thing and that is I have never taken a technically perfect photo and I hope never to if it means losing the feel/mood. Much like your comment about postcard like in the other thread

WOW to everyone. If they could shrink its size and weight, I would be all over it.

if you do not need the fast focus, the 180/2.8 is a far less expensive and excellent alternative.
