Is the 24-70mm f/2.8 in need of an Update?
Oct 2, 2010

I have had several members of this forum suggest that I wait to buy the 24-70mm f/2.8 because it’s due to be updated with a VRII model that will have even better optics (like Nikon did for the 70-200mm).

My two questions are..,

1) Do you think I should wait? (I can use an old Sony R1 that has a 24-120mm in the meantime.)

2) And if you do think so, how long do you HONESTLY "guess" before an updated 24-70mm f/2.8 VRII lens is released and available?
