I know my new 70-300 is VR II and it is in red. So I would tend to agree it is not any indication of VR I. My 18-105 is gold and I was unsure if it was VR I or II. I just wanted to see if it had any importance when looking at used lenses.
I will see what this week brings with the threat of Sandy. I may be on the road for work for a few weeks depending on where the storm hits. If not I will be out looking at the 18-200 I saw on Adorama's web site. I think this lens will work for trips to the park or out with m son, when I don't want to swap lenses or don't have the time. I know it will not be as sharp in certain areas, but I think its worth the trade off for what I am doing with it. I also think if I buy it used in the $500-$550 range I really can't loose on it.
Long term I think I will add another of the lenses mentioned like the 16-85 or 10-24, but after the 18-200 I think a quality flash will be next.
