I have the non VR.

I find it plenty sharp and contrasty on a D700.

I'm not at all tempted by the VR version.

I'd consider the 24-70, but that's a big heavy monster and not at all a walkaround lens, which is what I want in a mid-range zoom.

I'd carry my 17-35 2.8, my Voigtlander 40mm F2, and maybe an old 135 2.8 AIS before I'd carry that big 24-70.

It's not the camera. It's you.
