From ephotozine conclusion:

If price alone is taken into consideration, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this lens offers poor value for money, especially as it costs around 70% more than its predecessor. When the features added to this lens, including Vibration Reduction, compact size and light weight are taken into consideration, this lens starts to look like a decent upgrade over the old lens, and may even tempt a few owners of the AF-S 300mm f/4 IF-ED to part with their cash.

With this lens, Nikon have created a compact, portable lens, that is a decent upgrade over its predecessor. Sharpness is excellent across the frame from maximum aperture, the Vibration reduction system is effective, focusing is fast and the lens is small and light enough to carry around all day.
