I'll probably buy the 70/200mm f4 VR II at some point

Nikon is supposedly going to announce the 70/200mm f4 VR II next week. If this is true, I believe this will encourage many Canon users to switch to Nikon as so far the equivalent from Canon was non existant with Nikon. Nikon has truly rejuvenated many of its lenses whilst Canon seems to ignore the feedback from many users. Does anyone else think likewise?

if the news is real (the rumor sites have been more right than wromg lately). I use both brands in part because each brand has had distinct advantages in their lens line-ups. I just purchased the 24-70 II which blurred the distinction a bit. The 70/200mm f4 VR II certainly continues this "blurring".

Not for me, but it's possible the 70/200mm f4 VR II could be the tipping point for a shooter who has long contemplated a D800 switch but has held back due to lenses.
