am I the only one who think AF-S 80-400 would be out in 2013?

Since I have waited for this ever since I bought my D700 I have almost given up hope. I also agree with a previous post that, after seeing the introduction of the 16-35 and 24-120 f4 lenses with their zoom ranges too wide for real optical quality, clearly apparent at both ends of the zoom range in both lenses, so they are no threat to the f2.8 series, our chances of seeing a 'quality' 80/100-400 zoom are very small.

However Christmas, said to be the season of miracles, is approaching, so after introducing the 70-200 f4 perhaps Nikon will at last produce a 80/100-400 which is close to the 70-200 f2.8 both optically and mechanically. We will know if this is going to happen as a large star will appear in the East.
