Re: Don't think I'd spend $2K or more for ....

Perhaps Mr. Lammerse does know via first hand knowledge about the IQ and focus speed . . .

Maybe he does

But frankly, ever since the D3 there has not been a single $2000 and up Nikon lens with a gold ring that disappoints.

If what NR said about "Nikon had the design ready for a while but just holding it up" is correct, I rather think the performance is rather decent for the money, to a point it might threaten the sale of 200/300/400/500 exotic super teles.
