The new Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VR II lens has just gotten a new online review, this one by Peter K. Burian published at Photocrati.com. As usual, this is a photographer-priority experiential review, with the different aspects of the lens tested out. We won't spoil their findings here, so be sure to check it out.
Speaking of Photocrati, under way is their $5000 Photocrati Fund competition. The winning non-professional photographer will receive $5000 in cash to work on a humanitarian/environmental project. Submissions are accepted until March 15, 2010.
The lens is shipping for as low as $2300 at Amazon.com, depending on your third-party seller of choice (Cameta, 17th Street). Amazon herself has it for $2320 while B&H Photo is at $2329 plus applicable S&H.
