Why wait? - here's a prediction of what will happen.

Mansurov will love it, but Cameralabs will hate it.

70-200 f2.8 owners will describe the weight/cost differences to their pride and joy as insignificant.

70-300 owners will describe the weight/cost differences to their own lens as enormous.

Manual tele owners will say it is not built like a tank, and predict that the focus ring will fall off.

Eventually, one single poster will call the tripod mount a bargain.

This made me laugh, but its spot on!! If you buy it and don't like it, return it and buy the 2.8.. No reason to wait...
