Let's do some math:

14-24/2.8 : US$1999.    16-35/4 : US$1259 .  Cost 63% as much as the f/2.8 version.

24-70/2.8 : US$1899     24-120/4 : US$1299.  68%.

70-200/2.8 : US$2399.  If 70-200/4 cost 65% as much it would be $1559. The "next generation VR" would likely push the price higher :(.

Thanks for the good news, Patrick.

I don't suspect the price will be good news, though.
