What are the chances of Nikon updating these 2 particular lenses..? No really reason but only 2 i have that are not FL ED on my big guns..

Doesn't look good on the F-mount version of 200/2. It was discontinued without a simultaneous announcement of a successor. Very unlike Nikon. Sounds like a done deal.

My guess is we'll see the new one in Z-mount sometime in the future. 2030?

The 300 on the other hand is such a mainstay in SLR shooting, everybody has and needs a 300/2.8, so it is *faintly* possible we'll see a FL version... unless Nikon thinks the zoom and the VR II are enough for the F-mount and the FL will be announced in Z-mount sometime in the future. 2030?

Take good care of your current ones.

oh they are like brand new and the 300 is never been used.. I did notice B&H and other places have no 200 f/2 VR2's
