I am thinking about getting a 70-200 v1 or v2 (or even an 80-200) to go with my D7000. It'll totally be for my photography hobby - taking pictures of my young family indoors and outdoors and at some point, sports and indoor concerts. Portraits as well.

I current have a 24-70, 35 1.8, 50 1.4, and tokina 11-16. I tend to shoot wide open or close to it, too.

I know the 70-200 2.8 is excellent, but the size is bit overwhelming for me. The f4 version would be the perfect size and I like its sharpness.

Would I be lying to myself if I thought the f4 would work well enough on my D7000 in indoor lowish light situations? I don't have any lenses with VR so I'm not sure how much that will help compensate for the loss of 1 stop.

Thanks!
