    fluorite is a lens element.

    nano coating is but a coating on the lens.

    i would think that u're looking at ED element, of which i'm certain the new 70-200 f4 has.

    This one I didn't know. Hopefully this 70-200 version will have. And hopefully a lot lighter (and least as sharp if not sharper).

    all the L lenses i think, contain fluorite element.

    anyway, I think Nikon do have fluorite element lens too. i think it is in the microscopic lens division or something.

    Interesting to note that 70-200 f/4 contains a fluorite lens element, and 70-200 f/2.8 doesn't.
    Could be a move away from using fluorite due to manufacturing cost and complexity.
    Exploring! :)

    I agree, lightweight design can be used most of time when carry and shooting in outdoor.
