I highly doubt any of the high end glass from Nikon is EVER discounted no matter what your UK claims are..

You are wrong

You can track street prices for example the 600mm if you wish https://www.camerapricebuster.co.uk/Nikon/Nikon-FX-Lenses/Nikon-AF-S-600mm-f4E-FL-ED-VR-Lens

In the UK price comparison sites are common - and often retailers do price matching or very close to it.

In the US, things may be different. The 300mm f/4 PF lens costs today ($1996) in the US exactly the same as what I paid for it 5 and 1/2 years ago even though it is now readily available. Of course, if Nikon comes out with a newer version, it would go down. However, if one waits, one loses the years that one could be taking photos with the lens. For example, I have been using the 500mm f/5.6 for almost 2 years now, so what if it goes down a bit?

You are correct and that 500PF will not drop its price for years to come.. I bought my 800 f/5.6 for USD16,296.00 and still to this day its the same exact USA price as it was then...You want it, buy it and who would even think of waiting for a price to drop before buying..?
