Pros: VR works quite well.
Cons:
Backpain

I have the Nikon 70-300 ED and have been very pleased with the image quality. This is my first VR lens and will be used for sporting events, concerts, wildlife and portraits. The VR works well, in fact I didn't know how well until I turned it off. Focus is quite fast. In fact I got several very sharp images of some darting draonflys at 200mm. Very pleased. Let me know if you want to see them. Tripod mount is excellent, although this is my first lens to even have a tripod mount, I don't have any complaints about the weight of the mounting or the ergonomics. I'm not used to 3lb lenses, as this one is 2lb heaver than my 70-300, but the speed (2.8) is wonderful and worth the effort. Finally, my work on this unit with the 2x Nikon TC 20EII shows very satisfactory results. I'm pleased with the purchase.
