Review Date: Feb 8, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Superb image quality and colour rendition. Built to last.
Cons:
Price, but you only get what you pay for.

I have bought this lens after buying a Sigma 100-300mm f4.
Although the Sigma had more reach at the long end it does not in any way compete with the Nikon for image quality.
That is not to say that the Sigma is not a good lens because it is, its just that the Nikon lens blows the competition right out of the water.

The VR is amazing, I have taken sharp pictures using the VR at shutter speeds of 1/15 of a second and that's hand held with no mono-pod or tripod. The lens feels well built as well, not at all plastic or fragile.

If you are looking at this review then you probably already know something about this lens, if you have the money then you go ahead and buy it you will not in any way be disappointed.

Here are some photos taken at the British Museum in London. All were in low light and hand held. If you have never visited the British Museum then you really really should it is wonderful, jammed full of mind blowing artifacts many of which are thousands of years old.
