NR is reporting as 99.99% Confirmed that the AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200 f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II and AF-S Nikkor 70-200 mm f/2.8G ED VR II will be announced on July 30th.
No source is given, or explanation as to why he believes it is confirmed. The current 18-200mm is a relatively new lens and already has VRII, is Nikon about to announce the third generation of its VR? Is it just a minor update that fixes the zoom creep and improves optical quality? We'll know by the end of the week.
