I have a Nikon Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm F/2.8 IF ED AF-S D which I am looking to exchange for Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens.
Is it necessary. I'm thinking I need the VR. I could not find any review comparisons.
I shoot with a D700 and do alot of Landscape shooting.
Is there an upgrade difference (VR aside) in that the VRll will work better on digital FX as the prior lens was made for film days.
