Peter Mann notes that Nikon Germany has set the suggested list price for the AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED at 2,299 Euro (or about US$2355). The black-barrel version of the new lens is to ship in March 2003, says a press release, with the light grey version to follow approximately six months later. Nikon USA earlier this week announced a ship date of April 2003, but did not reveal the suggested list price for the AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED in the US market.
Note: The actual selling price for Nikon products is almost always lower than the suggested list price; the suggested list price can also vary by region worldwide. Therefore, consider the suggested list price to be only a rough indicator of the lens' final price when it ships in the spring.
