HI kegler, :D

Yeah, that was what I was thinking but I feel that the AFS is a much better lens. The VR is more prone to flare, maybe with the 22(?) elements. :dunno:

And espn, would you get both??? :nono:
I rather get a 80-400 VR and one of there instead of getting both if I had the money.

CHeers! :thumbsup:

Frankly, if I could I would get both, but too bad I have no use for the range that these lenses provide thus I'm not getting :)

That was a report i read with both lenses pointed at the same direction and the VR had flare in them.

Also, with the added electronics, the lens would be more fragile I would presume but that is a minor point else would just have gotten the 2 touch instead.

HI there usedr111,

It is cheaper but with the motor inside the lens. You can never tell its previous history and once it damages, it's a $500 bill.

That got me thinking.....
