Anyone knows why the lens had such a short production run?

My best guess is that the IF Internal Focusing versions of all the long lenses stopped production of the old versions.
Nikon did this vith the 300mm f/2.8 as the first IF lens in 1977 at the same time as the 300mm f/4.5 got an ED element,,, So evolution
