    Can anyone tell me if the VR lens is worth the extra dosh over the standard glass?.

    I know it is not a top quality lens but my pocket can't run to the likes of the 70-200 and since I have dropped and broken my current standard version I need a replacement.

    apparently it's much better than the G version that I have, but not tried it yet myself

    I have the Non VR earlier version just the straight D type with ED glass, And have been more than happy with it, The new VR version has 2 ED lens elements compared to only one in my version, SO it should be better on quality.

    The question is by how much, If it's better than my old ED version then it's gotta be a nice lens, and then there's the VR to consider as well,

    I have not been tempted to change my old lens for the VR ED, But if I was buying one today I would probably go with the New VR ED version.

    The other thing on the new lens is the use of the Silent Wave AF motor, It's quieter and faster than the old one.

    I recently brought this lense and I can't praise it highly enough a cracking lense for a cracking price.
    I have very shakey hands but my pics are pin sharp.

    Nice one Mark, the ED VR is on my list if my old one goes splat anytime.

    I too recently bought this lens and love it. The VR works pretty well and from my newbie eye the pictures look pretty good. Most of my portfolio pics are taken with it.

    I really wanted the 70-200VR but couldn't stretch that far with budget and or portability value.
