I wonder why the 24-70 f/2.8 has no VR

I wonder why the Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 has no VR

And also, even Canon 24-70 f/2.8 also have no IS.

I thought, maybe, VR is not possible at this focal length

range, without disturbance to sharpness, bokeh, etc...

But then Canon has a 24-70 f/4 IS.

This keeps me wondering.

And....  Nikon puts VR on 16-35 f/4 VR...

So, it's not as if Nikon thinks "only Tele needs VR"
