I too stayed with the "old" 28-70 f2.8. I really wanted to upgrade to the 24-70 f2.8 but after borrowing one and using the newer lens for a while, I could not justify the additional cost. There might be some situations where the newer lens' wider reach would have been useful for me and it might have been sharper in some situations but on the whole, it didn't feel like a great upgrade to me.

I would think that if you're buying a news lens altogether, it would be worthwhile to buy the newer 24-70 f2.8 just because it is newer, have a better warranty and ultimately be a better overall package.
