I am on the verge of purchasing a telephoto lens and I am considering the 80-400 as one of the possible choices. The other would be the 300 f/4. One thing I have heard is that Nikon maybe updating the 80-400 to better VR and perhaps make it a constant 4.0. I can't remember if I heard this rumor at Nikonians or on another website. However, before I take a plunge, has anyone heard this also? I don't want to buy a current 80-400 only to have it upgraded soon after I buy it. Please let me know if you have heard anything about an upgrade to this lens that will be happening soon.

Thanks
Ron
