The original Nikon 70-200/2.8 VR was a disappointing dud on the full-frame Nikon D3/D3x/D700, but the new “II” version promises better things.
As I wrote this, the new Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR was in stock , so grab one before they disappear.
I expect the 70-200VR to be used primarily in the 135-200mm range, so that’s where I’ll be focusing my efforts. Whether the latest VR (vibration reduction) is more effective will also be of interest. The tripod foot looks like the same under-engineered design prone to flex and vibration. Replace it with a Really Right Stuff tripod foot immediately, should you intend to use the 70-200VR on a tripod (do check first that the foot is compatible with the “II”).
