My decision was based primarily on lenses I own or expect to own. I have an AF-S 300mm ED-IF f/4, which of course gives a 450mm perspective on my D7000. I wouldn't change it for any other combination. Super fast autofocus. I use a BushHawk shoulder mount and at 1/2000th of a second I don't care about VR. With my D700 I use the VR 28-300mm as my walk-around lens. The two together cover my wildlife photography needs within a reasonable budget.
