Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VRII

I now have my dirty little hands on the new Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VRII. Nikon kindly sent me the lens to take for a test drive so I could write an in depth review on the performance of the lens. Actually no. No they didn’t. I lie.

I do have the lens, but I had to pay pretty pennies for it. I put a deposit on the lens at The Camera Store in Calgary about 3 months ago to ensure I would get one of the first few lenses to arrive. I took a couple of test shots with it this afternoon and I was immediately impressed……. So I should be. Now I can not wait to have a real play with it. The lens that is.

      Jamie, The shots I have seen so far from this lens are very very impressive. I held off getting a telezoom for quiet a while. The wait was worth while.
