I don't understand the pricing on the new 200mm 2.8

Nikon prices the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II at $2100 and Canon a similar lens for $1950 while the fixed-focal-length 200mm 2.8 from Panasonic built for an image circle far smaller is priced a thousand more.

I don't get it.

And I do not accept the 1.4 teleconverter makes up that difference.
