Although it sounds expensive, its a professional tool. All the current high end Nikon zooms (14-24, 24-70, 70-200) were considered to be over priced when released. But their performance, compared with what went before, made them worth every penny. On paper the 70-200mm F4 looks to be from the same stable, with the addition of the best VR technology to date. If it lives upto the specs, then I think a grand is a fair price to pay.

I'm still using the old 80-200mm F2.8, so I can afford to wait for the release price to slide down to £999, before jumping in. By that time it will be fully tested and reviewed, and ebay will be full of third party tripod collars, identical to Nikon's for a fraction of the price
