This lens is extremely versatile, from 7-12 meters to 100 meters to the moon - the lens does not disappoint in reach, clarity, sharpness, & bokeh. It's my default go-to lens for all of my sporting events, and when I need the reach to bring subjects closer, or to compress landscape. I have paired it both with the D300 and the D800 bodies.

Pros:
- High quality materials and built like a tank
- Easy to read and use switches and rings
- Clarity, sharpness and bokeh are exceptional
- VR II works great

Cons:
- It's big and heavy. Know when you need it
- Expensive, but the value is so right-on

It's really the best lens purchase that I've made. If there was one lens that I could have - this would be it. The lens does not disappoint.

If you're thinking of buying this lens, you're probably already a fairly keen amateur or you're a pro. If you're shooting on FX, then in my opinion, the decision to buy or upgrade to the new model of this lens is a no-brainer. The VR is noticeably better than on the old model, and the vignetting and corner softness which plagued the old model is almost absent at all focal lengths and apertures. Yes, at close range, you're not getting a full 200mm equivalent focal length at maximum reach, but in practice, that isn't really an issue, at least in my case. Because it lacks real close focus abilities (around 5 feet minimum focus) this isn't a lens for zooming right in on nearby objects anyway. You're far more likely to be shooting from 150mm down at close range. What you want is good reach at distance and great bokeh, and this baby delivers it in spades. The bokeh is every bit as good as on the old model. I upgraded from the old model to the new model after much debate and soul-searching, and I'm so glad I did. On an FX body, it's a real step up from the old model. However, if you're shooting on DX, then my advice would be to consider buying the old model secondhand instead. The extra stop of VR (which is effectively all you'll be getting in the new model) is just not worth the increment in cost to go to the new model, and because DX shoots using the centre portion of the lens, you have none of the softness and vignetting issues that FX bodies suffer from in the old model. FX shooters - if you like vignetting and corner softness - add it in photoshop - at least you have the option not to have it in automatically applied to every shot at f2.8 now!

You can find all the technical stuff, comparisons and reviews elsewhere with a simple Google search, so ... my comment is simply about the first picture I took with this lens. I upgraded recently to a Nikon D7000 and bought the 70-200mm f/2.8 as one of several lenses. The first shot I took was hand-held and indoors with no flash at f/2.8, 1/30sec and an ISO (believe it nor not!) of 5600, and the shot of one of my dogs is unbelievable. I was completely gob smacked at how sharp and clear the picture is, with a great rendition of colours and superb bokeh. For a one-off point and shoot, practice shot to try out the lens I can tell you that this lens is worth every penny it costs. I've taken pictures over the last 30 years and clocked up 10K shots in Galloway in the last 3 years and this lens is something else. Sell the car, re-mortgage the house or trade in the yacht and go buy one :-)

This is the go to lens for Pro and serious ametuer Nikon shooters. I bought this for my D800 as it requires top quality glass to get the most from the camera's resolution. My 70-300 was ok on the D800 but not quite as sharp. I like the integral tripod collar ring and the build quality us amazing, but then you would expect that for the price.

I'll skip redundancy and just say that this is a great lens. With the D800 it's as good as it gets. Now, if you plan to shoot handheld, for which VR II is there to do the job, and it does, after one hour you'll definitely feel the need to do some previous workout. It's heavy.

Of course, we get it because we plan to shoot handheld. Otherwise, a non-VR lens would do. This one requires a monopod if you're shooting for a long time.

BTW, it's also great with the Nikon 1 system, and you get a really nice 540mm reach.

the quality and feel of this lens is superb, but it is so heavy that you have to hold the lens more than the camera, or risk damaging the mount. It is very fast and the f2.8 aperture gives excellent low light performance. If you're looking at this, you may have to decide whether you would take this one or go for the new f4 one which is about half the weight, a bit quicker, and just as good, but loses out on the light grabbing capabilities of this lens. If you're looking at travelling a lot with this lens, you will almost certainly prefer the F4 version.
