Guys this is a BIG BOY lens!
For the last few months I have been searching up and down the country for stock of this lens at a reasonable price. (Even considered importing from HK). Today I stumbled across this on the Jessops site at the price of £1648 so I reserved and collected it from Bluewater.
Also, Quidco tracked (4% of value excl. VAT) £56.10 giving me the lens for the handsome sum of £1591. A bargain if you ask me.
Not going to give you that dont vote cold rubbish but please bear in mind that this is Nikon's flagship and is primarily targeted at serious photographers.
