Predictions > nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G VR ED Nano

I have heard rumors about the new updated 70-200mm VR with Nano coating to be released in the fourth quarter of 2008. It is no surprise that nikon will upgrade all its Golden Series lenses together with all primes in a very near future. As they have started to do that with 600mm VR Nano, 500mm VR Nano, 14-24mm f/2.8G Nano, 24-70mm f/2.8G Nano and the next will be no surprise that 70-200mm f/2.8G VR Nano.
I am expecting nikon to release 50mm f/1.4 Nano, 85mm f/1.4 Nano soon. After these admiral primes, the next step will be Ultra Wide Angle Primes which have considerably level of chromatic abberrations. ED was a good solution in the past, but it is time for Nano Crystal Coating now...
As you all know, 70-200mm VR has very high levels of resolution values, very low vignetting but some CA's which do not fit such a high level lens. With nano crystal coating, it will be a flawless lens like its brothers 14-24mm and 24-70mm's.
For small budget nikoners, wait a while, you will see "OLD" 70-200mm VR's very soon in the second hand market with lower prices.

Expected price tag of the new nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G VR Nano will be around 1700US$/Euro
