To those of you who have shot with both lenses, I am interested in your opinion of the 70-200mm f4 Nikkor vs the 70-300mm VR Nikkor I have now.

Quite simply, would the 70-200 be a significant upgrade in sharpness and quality? Obviously, it would be faster throughout the zoom range. And, although I would lose some focal length on the long end, I also have a 400mm f5.6 Nikkor, so I think I would be comfortable with that gap.

What else would I gain or lose by making the switch? I shoot with a D7000.

Thanks for your input.

Fred
