Again Canon has a cheaper lens available. The Canon 70-200 f/4L IS USM and the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR are similar in price but in Nikon I don't have a non-stabilized cheaper version.

I understand that IS is important and it's better but some times is not needed (for example when shooting on a tripod) and if the lens does not come with it, it's cheaper, and Nikon does not offer that choice.

Well a quick trip to one of the local chains here shows that I can buy the Nikon 80-200 f2.8 AFD brand new  for $1149.  Yes the Canon 70-200 f4 non IS version is cheaper.

But there are alternatives and choices.
