Summary: I had done tons of research trying to decide between the 70-300mm and the 70-200mm/f4. I originally bought the nikon 70-300mm lens as an upgrade from my beloved 55-200mm kit lens. The 70-300mm lens is great and defiantly takes better pictures than the 55-200mm and focused much faster than my fathers...
Summary: I wanted to get the 70-200mm 2.8 but had to settle for this one because of the 2.8's $2,500 price tag. The f4 is a good lens no doubt about it. Used with flash it delivers stunning results. Sometimes it has problem focusing in low light but this problem can be handled by focusing the lens manually.
Great because it's much lighter and less "look at me" than the 70-200 2.8 VR II.

Summary: I originally got this because it's about $1000 cheaper than the 70-200 2.8 VRII. It takes great photo when there's enough light out and much lighter on your arm/shoulder/dignity when you''re running around the street with this.
Summary: I purchased this lens to use with my Nikon D4 for portraits and for wildlife photos. I am very pleased with this lens. It is light, focuses fast, and has very good image quality and color rendition. It also produces a very pleasing bokeh.
Summary: Before recently switching to Nikon to acquire the D600, I've been a long time Canon equipment user, primarily because of their high quality f/4 "L" lens line, for which Nikon had no reasonably priced equivalents. Not so any more.
Summary: I think i can honestly say i have never owned such an excellent lens. On the D300, it is razor sharp, with lightening fast auto focus. As stated above its very quiet. Image quality was excellent and did not display any discernible issues with any of my filters (ND,CPL etc).
This is a good lens to get for secondhand and price, for pro use.

Summary: This Nikkor lens was the first to use the VR and going from 70- to 200mm F2.8 G AF-S that replace the old 80-200mm f2.8 AF-S ED lens. The lens is lighter to hold on your hand and can remove tripod collar which is a choice you can do.
Very high IQ, very nicely made, one small (buy fundamental) design irritation.

Summary: You can read reviews of the IQ all over the place, so I am not going to bore you with long comments on that. It's great quality, the VR works well and it's quite light in the hand, compared to the monster f2.8.
Summary: I was using a 85mm 1.8G on a D800 which gave tack sharp files when blown up, but only if it is on a tripod or you are lucky enough to hold it totally still. So went for one of these 70-200 f4 as the stabilisation would help me and the 2.8 is too heavy.
