Breaking: Nikon 70-200mm f/4 lens with next generation VR to be announced next week

Together with the Nikon 1 V2, on October 24th Nikon will announce also a new 70-200mm f/4 lens that will most likely be the first Nikkor lens with the next generation VR system. This lens has been rumored for a while and was supposed to be announced back in 2010/2011, not sure what caused the delay - maybe Nikon decided to pull the trigger after the Tokina AT-X 70-200mm f/4 PRO IF FX lens was introduced early this year (not released yet).

The new lens will be on display during the PDN Photo Plus Expo in New York next week.

In 2011 Nikon filed a patent for a 70-200mm f/4 VR lens.

The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens currently sells for $1,199 after a $150 rebate. Don't expect the Nikon version to be cheaper.

Back in 1982 Nikon did have a 70-210mm f/4 lens.
