This lens may be old news to all of you pros, but I haven't seen it mentioned yet. I was fortunate enough to get to examine Nikon's prototype 70-400 lens with a type of image stabilization function. I cannot remember what they called the system (vibration dampening?), but it was very interesting. After focusing on an object, even hand-held out to 400mm, you push the stabilization button and the image noticeably steadies. The lens was small and compact for it's focal length range. I do not know when it is due out, but I think the price is going to be in the $1400. to $1500. range (U.S.).
