Upload & Sell: Off
I saw that this morning, too. Amazing what things one can learn while grasping at the 0.03% hope that the D300 & D700 lines are going to be merged into... oh, I'll shut up.
Terrific lens- I don't see any reason for a retailer to want to offer it for less. A $120 INCREASE would make more sense, especially since the Nikkor's AF is slower, costs almost 2x more, and its only advantage is that it's weather-sealed.
