Not sure where this info came from. This lens is not listed on Nikon's site and the price just seems way to low to be real. I don't think this one is for real.

http://nikonusa.com/template.php?cat=1&grp=5as for price ill keep looking for a truth... but if you think about it... its not much cheaper then canon's 70-300 IS... which is at $549.99... o well... ill still look for a solid price...

edit "The 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor lens will be available beginning October 2006 with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $669.00**. "

Thanks for the link. The I knew the $499 price was a bit low, but even at $699 its a pretty good deal for this commonly requested range.
