Will you buy the 70-200 f4 on the 29th or will wait for some reviews?

A bit of a risk image even if image quality is a tad below the 2.8 the weight and size offer real advantages for me.

Well, looking at the Nikon's MTF charts for these two lenses the F4 gives materially better edge performance than the F2.8. In fact its superiorty is sufficiently apparent to make me think that a version III of the 2.8 is inevitable before too long.

Nikon needs something closer to Canon's 70-200 2.8 II. This new F4 if anything looks better than Canon's already superb 70-200 F4 IS and now I would like to see Nikon do the same with their 2.8.
