Wasn't the previous 300 mm lens retired at about 12 years old?

Does this suggest that  there will be a new version along soon, possibly with VR?

And given the price of the new 80-400, does this suggest that a 300F4 AF-S G VR Super-ED-IF N will cost ... $2500?   (And still have a crap tripod collar).

Exactly, once (N) and VR are added, we are looking at a $2400 minimum lens.

I'm afraid your probably right.  Given how this lens performs I'm not sure N is really necessary, but VR would sure be nice.
