The MSRP listed prices have nothing to do with what their actual prices will settle in at. I think we should relax a little.Yes. Maybe the price will settle around $1900. That's what Nikon's 24-70 sells for.
For example: The EF 100mm f/2.8L has a list price at $1,700.00USD on Amazon all the time, but it sells at around $900 all day.
