How low will the prices go on the v1 70-200mm if and when folks (gearheads primarily) go out and get the latest and greatest v2 70-200 or do you think prices will not drop? If the prices get down in the vicinity of $1100-1200 i would give serious thought to selling my 80-200 afs and getting a 70-200 v1 for the added benefit of vr.

Just some fun speculation...

I'm afraid that the drop in price that you're hoping for probably isn't realistic for a new unit of Version 1.

Version 2 is over $400 more expensive than Version 1, so I don't see any incentive to drop the price on Version 1.

my guess is that the fate of that lens is tied directly to the price movement of the new model. if in mid 2010 the new one is 1999, I'd expect the "old" one to trail it by 300-400 bucks. So you can pretty much forget seeing it for low 1000s until the new one makes it well below the 2k mark. and who knows when that, if ever, happens.

Or people who want to talk about the new lenses can realise there are already (too) many threads and can post in one of the existing without having to create yet another "useless" duplicate :tongue:

its not a matter of not wanting to read its a matter of consolidating and organizing information. Scattered threads lead to repeated questions and decrease the resourcefulness of this forum.

You're preaching to the choir here. I don't like the multiple threads either, but they're inevitable.

I've tried posting into duplicate threads a link to the main thread and a suggestion to post there instead. Yet people keep adding to the second thread.
