VR versus VRII nikon lens

Jeff Secunda , Mar 03, 2007; 08:38 p.m.

Is there any difference between VR and VRII? Some lenses are advertised with VR and Some with VRII. I would like to know if VRII is an updated version.

Thanks

Yes it is the updated version.

Supposedly there is an additional "stop" of stability, though I don't know how you could tell.

How do you know your lens is been updated with VRII?

There are only a few VR II lenses. No VR lens has been upgraded to have VR II.

As a novice, will I notice any difference between VR and VRII. I see some 18-200 VR lenses selling for less than VRII. I dont currently have one and would like to buy one.

Jeff, all Nikon 18-200mm lenses are VR II. If you see someone selling the 18-200 VR, then it is still VR II (the advertiser didn't care to put the "II" in).

How about the 70-300mm, are they all VR II? If not, how do you tell the difference?
