I would recomend the Nikkor 24-120 f4 as a walk around lens. Great IQ, great range, VR. But pricy.

If you realy want a 24-70 f2.8, then look for an old Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro Aspherical (not the HSM version, but the one shown here http://www.amazon.com/Sigma-24-70mm-Aspherical-Aperture-Standard/dp/B0009E1XFI/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1337198688&sr=1-1 ). I got one of these new for $450 about 5 years ago. And it's about as sharp as a lens can get. Just awesome. Now, I'm not sure if I was just lucky with my copy, or if all lenses of this type are that sharp. But be warned: It's huge and heavy and needs very expensive 82mm filters.
