Those of us using Nikon for more than a decade have been asking for a 70-200 f4 VR for around 10 years.

I sold my 300 f4 AF-s and 80-400 VR 3.5 years ago having convinced myself upgrades should be due. I am still waiting!

Digressing the Thailand flood may have delayed some lens launches. The availability of better and more affordable FX bodies probably means Nikon are now very busy increasing existing FX lens production.

My guess is, but for the Thailand flood, a 70-200 f4 VR (or similar) would have followed the 16-35 and 24-120 f4 optics.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.

NO NO NO

Fast glass.

There is no substitute for fast glass.  All these threads give Nikon the idea that F4 and worse is a good idea.  Why take 10,000 dull photographs at F4 when you can take a great one at F1.4?  Head for the stars, wallowing in mediocrity is a waste of life.   Let start asking for a fixed F2.0 zoom and F1.0 primes.
