    I like this. The first thing that came to mind was that the bride is slowly sliding down his body, eagerly anticipating shoving the cock of the man who just gave half of his net worth to her, into her mouth.

    I don't know what the 70-200 VR I was like, but after playing with the 70-200 VR II I'm impressed! Talk about a lens built like a fucking tank! I'd say it's even way better built than the 70-200 2.8 L IS from Canon.

    i rented the 70-200 VR I a good 3-4 times when i had my D70, and the ergos on the nikon 70-200 are much better than the canon 70-200. the build quality/weight feel about the same to me.

    guy on another site just got his, and it looks like it is a lot more ergonomic (and very much like the 24-70).

    Makes my Sigma 70-200 look like a kit lens. :(

    the VR II looks fatter and less "shapely" than the VR I -- id imagine it's not as easy to handle as the VR I. looks a lot like the canon.

    fucking love the first one, and won't be replacing it as I don't have any issues with it right now.
