The Nikon AF-S 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens started shipping in the US in limited quantities last week. The official release date is today (March 19th) - expect many other stores to start selling/shipping the lens. Foto Hans Keuzekamp provided me with some sample images taken with the new lens, but first few more product images (FYI: the lens is made in Japan):
