Rumour announced today:-

http://www.cameraegg.org/af-s-nikkor-80-400mm-f4-5-5-6g-ed-vr-to-be-announced-on-march-14-2013/

Price at $2999 equivalent to £2000 or 2100 Euro, I wait 6 months or so and price will be around current 70-200 AFS F2.8 mk 2 and then it will be similar to Sony 70-400 lens in price

Hi,

I find it interesting that the name of the lens says "G" but the image shows a real manual aperture ring that is not consistent with "G" lenses. SO, either the image is fake or Nikon reintroduced the manual aperture ring on this lens.

My opinion is the the image is not of the rumoured lens but a simple Photoshop makeover. I wish I was wrong.

Best,

AIK
