For $5K, it better be a good lens. This is a Nikon lens forum, but
it is hard not to bring up a semi-comparable Canon lens, the
100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L. Not as fast as the Nikkor for sure, but
perhaps just as good optically and a bit wider at the wide end, for a
fraction of the price. If Nikon makes a lens comparable in sharpness
and price to the Canon 100-400L, it would be wildly popular.

The Canon 100-400 is not in the same class as the Nikon 200-400. And Nikon does make a lens comparable in sharpness, aperture, and focal range to the Canon: the 80-400 VR.

Cheers
