it is much cheaper than Nikon's 24-70 ($1300 vs $1900) and has VC. B&H says Nikon's verson comes out at the end of May. Canon version is available right now.

Thanks for this didn't know about this lens. That said its the same price as the Nikon but I guess you get VR and its lighter, wonder when they are available?

I got 50mm 1.4G and 85mm 1.8G. I also was looking at 24-120 F/4 and 24-70. I tested 24-70 and also Tamron's 28-75 on my D800. However, now I am looking at Tamron's new 24-70 F/2.8 VR. I believe that having VR with my D800 is highly beneficial. Here is the first review for the new Tamron

the sharpness in their examples is amazing.
