the 16-35VR is great, but should that be Nikon's priority?

But yes, the midrange zoom for FX is weak. What makes me think it will be next?

Lack of VR in the 24-70/2.8, of course.

Won't having two lines of mid range and wide zooms where the faster ones don't have any VR but cost more make those bigger, faster zooms fairly limited appeal offerings -- especially as even faster primes come along? Given that, the 24-70/2.8 still needs VR.
