Another quick update from DxOMark - the test score for the new Nikkor 70-200mm f/4G ED VR lens ($1,396.95) is out. Unfortunately DxOMark doesn't have any test data for the new 70-200 f/2.8 VRII lens and the above comparison includes only the older 70-200 f/2.8 model. Their conclusion:
"The Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f/4G ED VR shows itself to be a remarkably good performer. If you are a Nikon user and are in the market for a 70-200mm focal range lens, it makes a great case for serious consideration with high scores in all lens test metrics and a price that is much lower than expected for the performance on offer. It does seem hard to suggest a lens costing over $1000USD can show value for money, but in the case of this lens, it really does. In the battle of 70-200mm lenses, it is only out-scored by the Canon EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM that is almost double the price."
