Not surprisingly, this 200mm shot came out tact sharp (in my opinion) when I shot this flora. One would imagine that at this range, everything starts getting blurry, but not so with this lens! Now, some believe that you can shoot as slow as 1/15 second at 200mm but a real steady hand would still be required. But hey, its still possible.
The VR II really works! One of the biggest problem while shooting with the Nikon D90 kit lens was vibration when I attempted to shoot from a moving vehicle. Again, this limitation has effectively been nullified with the Nikon 18-200mm's Active VR mode.
