No harm in being first!

Ultimately it is you that you must please. That's how I look at it. It's good to have a lightweight alternative though, for instance I have a 55-200 AF-S VR DX for when I want to go light. It just comes down to affordability. Obviously if money was not the issue, we'd all have huge collections and who cares if there are multiple overlaps?
