"70-300 VR lens"

Hi all.

I just picked up a used copy of the 70-300 VR AFS lens. While I have only taken a few casual shots with it so far, I must say I am very impressed. Colors look great and the AF seems to lock on very fast and accurately. The VR works well and the zoom and focus rings feel perfectly adequate for a lens at this price.

Of course the only other 70-300 lens I have is the old G version which barely makes a good paperweight. When I get time to do some real testing I am not expecting this lens to match up to my 70-200 f/2.8 or my 200-400 f/4 but I think I will be pleased with the results.

I don't know when I have been so pleasantly surprised by a lens and I have over 30 Nikon lenses and a handful of 3rd party lenses.

Do others with this lens hold it is such high regard?

JIM
