My guess is that the price will be no more than $150 higher than the original retail price of the present 70-400G. Optics will remain the same so no R&D required there - thus no big bump up in price.

Possibly the exchange rate will be an issue though and this would be the reason if there was a substantial increase in price. I don't think this will be the case though. Most components of this lens probably produced somewhere other than japan thus the exchange rate might not be as big a deal as it might seem.

You asked for a guess - there is mine.
