super ED element?

"...a new optical design utilizing four ED lens elements and one super ED lens element, Nano Crystal Coat, which effectively reduces ghost and flare, a vibration reduction (VR) function that enables compensation for camera shake equivalent to a 4-step increase in shutter speed (tested in accordance with CIPA guidelines at a focal length of 400 mm), and a Silent Wave Motor (SWM)..."

the only other nikon lens i'm familiar with that has a super ED element is the super-sharp, super-bokehful 200mm f2 AF-S ... not that this guarentees similar performance.

OTOH, it looks like a tripod collar and mount is an additional option. just as well. given nikon's poor track record ... an RRS or Kirk addition might be a more solid addition.
