I think it's finally time to move to a F2.8, now I'm happy with the image quality of the Nikkor so I think I can get away with a Sigma or Tamron 2.8 (non-OS/VC probably) but was wondering how those lenses stack up to it before I buy one. This will be for use on a D700 and probably D800 in a year or 2, but almost always at sky high ISO due to the venues I shoot concerts at.

Any reason you're not considering a Nikon 80-200/2.8? Since you seem willing to forgo OS/VC/VR, it seems like a logical choice. Coming from an older zoom like the 70-210/4, you'll feel right at home with an 80-200/2.8.

With the new OS/VC models coming from Sigma/Tamron the older ones are probably going to have a big drop in price....while Nikkor lenses really don't go down that much.  My hope is to have this lens for awhile and then sell it (hopefully for about the same since it will have already gotten the hit from being a generation back/used) for a VRII when I get a D800.
