I'd actually suggest a used Tamron 28-75. Try to find one without the built-in focus motor (provided you're using a camera body with its own motor). The newer BIM version is much slower and less accurate in focusing.

I can't afford a new Nikkor 24-70, so I think I've narrowed it down to the above two. I will use the lens for portraits.

Thanks in advance.
