I know the Nikon is the better lens, but is it worth the extra $600+ now that Tamron has an image stabilized alternative? I have a D90....looking to step up at some point (tempted by the D600 but have too many DX lenses). I would use it primarily for travel and family. Right now, I use either my 18-105 or one of my primes (35 1.8, 50 1.8, 85 1.8) but I was always envious of the 24-70 2.8.

Thanks for your help on this!

I can't remember where I read it or saw it(possibly Youtube) but somewhere said the Nikon had the better/faster auto-focus...which in my book is money well spent.
