    I was hesitant to buy this lens. It is definitely expensive at $2400, which makes it about twice the price of a Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 VC. I already own a 70-200mm f/2.8 Lens from Tamron, and the problem I was running into was that my Nikon D810 didn't recognize the difference between the two Tamron Lenses (It thought they were the same). So the auto-focus fine tuning, and calibration had to be changed any time I switched those lenses. Needless to say for professional work, that was not going to work. When I started reading reviews for this lens (granted it's only been out for about a month now)... people were giving it a hard time for it's price tag. Saying things like "It's not worth the upgrade from the old one..." and "VR isn't necessary at that focal length..." Well, let me tell you. I picked up this lens, after having tested 3 of the original 24-70mm lenses without the VR, and it is ABSOLUTELY worth the price difference. The auto-focus system is fast, and accurate. This lens is extraordinarily sharp at all focal lengths and apertures. The VR is EXCELLENT and allows for handheld shots at 1/5th of a second, even at 70mm. That's Crazy! I very frequently buy and return lenses because I'm picky... Very Picky... but this thing makes me actually say "This thing is spectacular" out loud every time I use it.

    I been wanting to get this lens since Nikon announced it was adding the VR feature to the 24-70mm f/2.8 And when I was able to get a 18 month interest free finance from Best Buy that was my chance to get it. Now this lens is heavy, It is expensive. But let me tell you the pictures you get with this bad boy are simply !!AMAZING!! It makes you forget how heavy and and expensive this lens is. It is well worth the price and the burden of carrying it around. If you can afford it get it. You will not be disappointed.

    Nikkor 24-70 VR seems to be a good lens. Takes good picture even in night. Satisfied with it. I can not compare as I did not used the earlier version.

    Before I purchased this lens, I had the 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 which is a kit lens for most FX bodies. I have been using it for about a month now and I have noticed better quality in my shots. This lens almost never leave my camera. It is great for both landscape portrait shots. The price is a lil steep, but if you are serious about your work and want sharp photos, then I would seriously consider purchasing this lens.
