Thumbs up Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR - VR allows 1/10 sec handheld at 300mm !!

Had a quick play with the Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR lens today, & have to say I am mighty impressed by the VR function. Managed to get pretty sharp shots at 300mm @ 1/10 sec exposure

I'll have to try some tripod shots for out & out test of sharpness at 300mm, but so far the lens is looking very promising

You'll have to excuse the composition of this shot, as I was testing DOF. Pre focused on light behind. Taken hand held,300mm, f/5.6, 1/10 sec (no flash)
