    Default NR: 70-200 f4 finally!

    Nikon Rumors revealed latest nikon patents!

    Finally! 70-200 f4! hope it'll be way cheaper.. hehe

    http://nikonrumors.com/2011/09/27/th...atents-4.aspx/

    When do you guys think it'll come out? I wonder if nikon 70-200 f4 will be better to buy rather than sigma 70-200 f2.8 OS

    Cannot deny that the 70-200/4 will be a hot seller when it hits the market.

    It should be priced somewhere close to Canon's 200/4 IS.

    Ah, just how many years have I been waiting for Nikon to release their own 70-200 f/4 ? Way to go!

    let's see if nikon's can match canon's in terms of IQ sharpness, build quality and price.

    finally, its time for the Nikon section to have threads like which 70200 to buy , though still an easier choice than the canon camp

    expecting half the price of the 70200 VRII?

    I'll still stick with my 70200 VR 1 though

    Why follow Canon ? As Canon already had this for long time ago.

    Nikon should be more creative. For example, AFS 135 f/1.8 VR or AFS 180 f/2.8 VR, which Canon doesn't have at this moment.
    NIKON D90 (2008-2010), D700 (2010-2012), D800 (2012-2014), DF (Dec 2013-Sep 2017)

    Wow! 20 elements (compared to another 70-210/4 which has 12 elements). This Nikon lens must be really special

    well, the recent poll shows equal interest with 70-200 f2.8 so nikon must act since market is there.

    Probably DX. Price I guess will be around $1,400.

    they already have a DX lens in 55-200. This one will be FX to compete with Canon's f/4 line. 16-35 was their first step

    and having a patent doesn't mean they'll act upon it. Will probably be a year or two down the road if it materializes.
