Seems to me that this lens will sell a lot of Bigmas for about half the Nikon price.

maybe. or it might inspire sigma to finally build a decent alternative that can compete at the long end. if the MTF charts are accurate, the new nikkor appears to be optimized for the long end, whereas the sigma VA super-tele zooms (all of them) are optimized for the short-middle.

it boils down to what's "good enough", and higher rez sensors demand high rez glass at the most important focal lengths.
