Why do we need 300/2.8 primes when we have the 28-300 super zoom???

Tokina makes a fine lens, but no where near the 24-70AFS. Let's be honest for a minute. I'm glad you are happy with the 24-120, although it does not have the resolution of the 24-70 and probably has the VR you want so much. I'd prefer sharp at f2.8 to a f4/VR with more zoom but lower resolution.

Each his own.

The 24-70 is just 2-3 years old, they will not replace it for a long time, and there is no need.
