How about a 200-400/3.5-4.8 for 1/3 of the cost?

its one lens that i am jealous of from the nikonians.

The Nikon costs $6300. The Sony 70-400/4.0-5.6 costs $1600. That's one stop slower for 1/4 of the price. A 200-400/3.5-4.8 by Sony Nikon should cost about $2000, and would only be 2/3 stop slower than the Nikon at the long end (but faster at the short end). Sounds like a better deal to me. Now Sony just needs to make one
