This is good news. I've been on the fence about switching from canon 50d to Nikon d600. Nikon not having the 300 f/4 vr was the big fly in the ointment for me. I love my Canon 300 f/4 IS and I'm sure this new nikon will be at least as good. The price point looks right as well. Woo-hoo. Full frame here I come.
