NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G VR II

If you visit often you know what this shot means - something new to test - this time a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR II lens. I know what you are thinking, "didn't he have the VRI version of this same lens?" Well yes, but Nikon gear holds its price so I was able to sell it to trade up to this new model. The new model has few benefits over the older one on my D300s cropped sensor, but considerable benefits on the Nikon full-frame DSLSs. In a few years I will probably be using full-frame, so now seemed like a good time to trade up while the older one was retaining a price that made selling it viable.

I have not had much of a chance to test this new one yet but so far it seems good. This shot is a little off in terms of exposure and has some blown out highlights, but it was a quick shot taken in JPEG so the exposure it is a photographer issue not a lens issue, I hope.
