This truly is a marketing gimmick. There simply is no substitute for fast aperture. Most likely, "new' photographers will be mislead into thinking that it is, in part due to this release.

As I recently mentioned, for the price difference, why not just go for the f/2.8?

Still scratching my head over this one- wondering why Nikon is even doing this.
