At the moment i do a lot of Superbikes with my 400mm f2.8 on a D800 or D300, but in my advancing years I am finding the wight of lugging it around for miles round a track all weekend is taking its toll and its starting to take a lot of enjoyment out of it for me.
So I've started thinkg about getting a 300mm f2.8 and if I don't miss my 400 that much sell that on a few months. If I can bear to part with it

Is there any difference optically and focusing speed between the VR11, VR1 and the AF-s versions?
The Vr would be useful for my non -superbike stuff sometimes.
And how does the 3 versions compare when using t/c thinking of the 1.4II, 1.7II and the 2.0III?

Price wise in the Uk when you get them seem to be £2,300 for the AF-S, £3,300 VRI (both s/h dealer prices with 3 month warranty) and £4,000 new for a VRII (can get a 2 year warranty)

Any info would be very welcome
