Which setup do people prefer: 80-200 f2.8 AF-D with Nikon 2x TC vs. 80-400 VR? I am leaning towards the VR, as I am not too excited about dealing with a TC and the 80-200 would have a slow aperture with the TC anyway. Plus, I like the idea that I won't always have to setup a tripod as much as now. On the other hand, the 2.8 is an excellent lens, and it might be worth it to deal with the TC and an excellent lens. I heard BJ Nicholls has the VR, if you can BJ, please share some quick points on it.
