    If you want, you can give the name that Nikon gives to that D format: FX format or full-frame 24mmx36mm.
    I'm pretty sure almost everyone here knew polyglot's meaning. And I'm certain he knew his meaning.

    Good idea. It's an incredibly good lens. Focusing is very QUICK especially when you pre-focus it. If the focusing mechanism has to travel full distance, it can take a bit so when speed is absolutely critical, I typically have it focused in approximate distance. You can do this either by pointing to something and hit the focus button (shutter half way) or turn the focus ring. Then little bit of tweaking autofocus has to do is pretty much instantaneous.

    Your decision will likely come as finding out if this lens is suitable for you and your needs, rather than is there a "better" lens....
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    I agree, VRII is better. It's some meaningful amount sharper even in the center. I dunno, I must have had a "good copy" or something... I didn't particularly have any complaint about VRI either. VRII was better but VRI was good too.... Then again, I don't make mural size prints. At 11x14, it's perhaps a moot point.

    I see differences at 11x14 as well. But yeah, a mural will tell all. Attached is one that is currently up, 10 feet high from a TMY-2 scan, F100, same lens....

    Like those "Digital Photo Albums" I see at the local camera shop.

    Finally got around to using my 70-200mm VR1 on my F5. Film was Fuji Velvia 50 and shot using box speed.
