super ED element?
In reply to Rich Dykmans, Mar 5, 2013

"...a new optical design utilizing four ED lens elements and one super ED lens element, Nano Crystal Coat, which effectively reduces ghost and flare, a vibration reduction (VR) function that enables compensation for camera shake equivalent to a 4-step increase in shutter speed (tested in accordance with CIPA guidelines at a focal length of 400 mm), and a Silent Wave Motor (SWM)..."

the only other nikon lens i'm familiar with that has a super ED element is the super-sharp, super-bokehful 200mm f2 AF-S ... not that this guarentees similar performance.

OTOH, it looks like a tripod collar and mount is an additional option. just as well. given nikon's poor track record ... an RRS or Kirk addition might be a more solid addition.
