I'd go for the Tamron. Although the Nikon is slightly better in the corners, the Tamron does better in center sharpness at some settings and has a very good VC system. The one I tried focused perfectly. You'll read lots of posts, but most have not shot with the Tamron and are cruising the web for their opinions. Try the lens as I did and form your own!

The VC opens up another avenue of shooting options that the Nikon lens can't do at all.

Nikon will update the 24-70 down the road and add VR. They won't stand for losing sales to Tamron. Buy the Tamron and upgrade to the new Nikon VR version down the road.

If you're a pixel peeper get the Nikon....ahhhh, choices!
