Nikon finally announced their long-awaited Nikkor 70-200mm f/4 VR lens:
It has Nikon's brand new 3rd generation VR system (the first lens to carry it) which Nikon claims can give the photographer up to a 5-stop advantage (compared to its predecessor's 4 stops). Its price in the US seems to be just south of US$1,400.
I know several folks went Canon because of the 70-200mm f/4 IS. We have to wait and see how the new Nikkor compares to the Canon (and the Canon is a superb lens, so Nikon had their work cut out). However, now there might be one less reason to buy white lenses.
And an amusing factoid: IIRC, the Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS was also Canon's first lens with their 3rd generation IS system.
