I heard rumor that Nikon is going to introduce an AF-S type 300mm/4 this year.
I have no intention to buy a big gun like the f/2.8 version, and really interested in getting a f/4 lens.
Any one knows when are we expecting to see the new intro? And will it turn out much much more expensive than the original one?

yes this is true.
I have seen pictures of it.
Try at my friend Gray Levett in London
(www.graysofwestminster.co.uk)and look under news or such. They are the only Nikon only shop in the world!
Retail in the UK is approx the same as the old version, which is not good at all in terms of AF, I bought a 2nd hand AF-I 300/2.8 from Gray instead, which can be used with the teleconverters perfectly. If the f4 version would have been available when I got mine, I guess I would have chosen that one, due to the price and size. My AF-I is great, but it is HEAVY!
