It very much looks like the f4 will be popular with those who have to carry it rather than shoot with it!!!

(I mean, in a kit bag on the off-chance they'll use it, rather than being in their hands ready for action at an event)

What I am realizing is that this lens is for like a mountain hicker or something, i mean, why would anyone sacrifice a 2.8 for low light and BOKE??  Im i wrong?  What Nikon should have made is a 70-300 f4 VRIII.  What are they thinking???
