Thom Hogan: Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.4G VR “coming very, very soon now”

Update: the patent for this lens was already covered last year.

Thom Hogan wrote on his site today that the new Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.4G VR lens is "coming very, very soon now". Yes, this lens will have VR as it was already discussed in the patent for that lens:

"A lens group or a portion of a lens group may be shifted in a direction perpendicular to the optical axis as a vibration reduction lens group for correcting an image blur caused by a camera shake. It is particularly preferable that at least a portion of the second lens group or the third lens group is used as a vibration reduction lens group."
