Certainly interested in this lens.  But I have to ask...

Wouldn't the Sigma or Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 be serious options to the Nikon f/4 offering?  The Nikon f/4 lenses that have been released to-date are not as good as their f/2.8 siblings.  I have the 24-120 f/4 and I love it.  But it is not the optical quality of the 24-70.  It simply has a a better zoom range that I like.

If  Nikon releases this new lens at upwards of $1500 in price I think I would rather take that money and buy an f/2.8 Tamron or Sigma.   The IQ will likely be as good and it is a stop better.
