Adding to the excellent comments above, it is similar to the 80-200 — just faster AF, better IQ, and VR. But you can use just as you did your old lens, except fo rthe VR.

Play with the VR. You will soon get used to the "lock in" delay — you can see it and you can hear it. And while good handholding technique and shutter speed recommendations are always recommended, all rules can sometimes be broken — try some very slow shutter speeds with VR, you may be pleasantly surprised. It's a nice technique when you need it.

Also experiment with turning VR off. Sometimes it gets in the way.

Go shoot and enjoy. It's really a fine lens!
