10Q, this is helpful info for me.Don't think so. It's discontinued for some time. Perhaps some shops may have new old stocks but I wouldn't want to take the risk. There's a reason why the shops couldn't sell off. Also the price may not be good as the shop might have been stuck with a high cost back then.
Either way, most local dealers selling sets from nikon distribution would have rotated the old stocks back to the distributor back then.
I think between getting it 2nd hand a new nikon 70-200 f4, I choose the later
