Brandon - check with me if you go out to buy one. Call me crazy but I may have mine (excellent shape with all boxes, etc) up for sale soon. I have been mainly using it with a 1.4 and 1.8 TC and recently bought a Nikon 80-400 VR that covers the same + range with no TC's. If it works out I may not keep my best lens, the 70-200 VR.

So far I have not decided as I'm still testing the 80-400. It is much slower to focus than the 70-200 (no AFS) but may be competitive at the long end when I compare sharpness becasue of the 1.7 TC issue on the 70-200. In any case if the 80-400 works out on the long end (although it will never be as fine a lens at the 70-200 range) and although it would hurt to see it go, I'm not sure I want to leave that much money tied up in a lens that I would then seldom use.

We'll see.
