    Frankly peeps, I have no doubt about 80-200mm's ability to take nice and sharp pictures. I have been looking over all those versions (1st, 2nd, 3rd:AF-S) for the past few months - read reviews, etc, etc. Way before I announced my decision to go for the current lens. I've even contemplated on Sigma's 70-200mm... Reviews read and re-read... One of the main reason why I went towards 70-200mm VRII is because of its ability to accept TC20E III (doubling the zoom for other day-time photography activities with the TC) while still able to take sharp pictures by itself at 200mm... It is the synergy of this two items that pushed me to end up with both... And why I didn't go for the 80-200 instead, simply because its reach can't be extended to the maximum available length (400mm).

    Some of you may think that it is a waste to get the TC III... I concur with your views. But in light of not wanting to keep TOO many lenses and all those boxes that you need to find storage for, I simply went for the compromised... No doubt, for that amount of $$$ some of you would rather go for the D700 or its replacement... with left over for other cheaper but good zooms.

    Yes, I've admit I wasn't too patient for a good priced second hand set to fall, but I felt that the time draws near that I can't put off that decision any more... as I still need practising before the big day (which is today and many more days to come).

    My needs are simple (though quite ex), go for the widest and more versatile UWA zoom... one lens for work, and the longest and most versatile zoom (within MY budget), plus maybe a f/1.4 prime or two... and that's it... So far i've not regretted any of the decisions. My dry cabinet remains manageable, and I'm almost reaching my "dream team"...

    If my purchases have made many of you uneasy, I shall refrain from any open discussion of lens purchases on my part. That should make the water surface more calm... okay?

    Now back to more BSing...
