    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.

    I bought this lens after trying the non-VR version. I wasn't happy at all with the non-VR, and for the price, I thought I should love it. So, I returned the one, and saved up for the difference. I have the Nikon 70-200 2.8 VRII and absolutely love it. The 24-70 is like the little brother to that lens, and I love it just as much. Is it expensive? yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely! If you can work it in your budget, you'll be thrilled to have the Nikon 24-70 2.8 VR on your camera. It's beautiful and and takes crisp, sharp pictures.

    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.

    This lens does NOT come off my camera. It's an expensive glass but you get what you pay for. If you are choosing your first upgraded lens, do yourself a favor and purchase this. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed. From weddings, to portraits, to sports- I use this lens!

    I purchased this lens as an upgrade from my 24-70 2.8 and wasn't satisfied at all. The images from this lens weren't sharp at all. The lens was much bigger and heavier. The filter size is also different so if you had filters for the old, you'd have to buy new ones. Definitely not worth the money. Complete downgrade is quality.

    I love this lens! It is a little heavier than my previous but that is due to the glass. It is well worth it to have such great photos. Good price, comparable to other places. I liked that I could have 12 months to pay without interest.

    I chose this lens to be my main one for my euro trip. Never regretted this decision! Images are very sharp, specially in low light conditions. Low light moving objects were hazy, and the angle is not wide enough.

    This is a great "everyday" lens. It is a bit on the heavy side but it is built solid. Sharp focus, amazing clarity, and thoroughly enjoy having the VR option for handheld low-light shots.

    Very versatile lens with latest Nikon technology. A little pricy. Good for landscaping and travel but a little heavy if that matters.

    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.
