A New 70-200mm f2.8 VR Nikkor?

Rumours abound that there is a new version of Nikon's venerable 70-200mm f2.8 VR lens in the works. An up-date to the latest version of Nikon's "Vibration Reduction" technology, "VR II" would be welcome.

There are also reports of problems when the existing version of the lens is used with the full frame D3 and D700. Nikon guru, Bjorn Rorslett, comments on the issues with the current version of the lens when used with the D3 and D700 on his site.

I can't see Nikon not addressing the issue as the 70-200mm f2.8 VR is one of their top lenses. As yet however, there is no official word from Nikon, so I guess we'll have to wait and see.
