From Cameralabs verdict :
Having the most effective image stabilization and the best image quality at the FX-corners in its class normally would earn this lens a Highly Recommended. But the very high price, the increase in size and weight and the nagging issues of aperture progression and AF fine-tune-ability mentioned above tip the scales towards only Recommended. Don’t get me wrong, this lens can still capture beautiful images. But its predecessor set the standard so high and the new lens unfortunately delivers less in some respects – at least with my test copy although if I get to try a second version I’ll update this review where necessary.
From Ken Rockwell conclusion:
This newest 24-70 VR is Nikon’s sharpest midrange zoom and is the world’s first pro midrange zoom with VR, but is also the biggest and heaviest midrange zoom ever.
You people who deserve the best know who you are, and this should be an extremely popular lens as all Nikon’s previous pro zooms have been. There can be only one best.
