When I first considered the lense I also worried a bit about it.   In the end made the leap, shoot a few events 14-24 on D600 and 24-70 or 70-200 on D4.   The reality of things if you practice good disciipline you are no more likely to damage this one than any other lense.

I second the comment about getting insurance.   Better have what you need to capture the moment than be paralayzed and not have the right equipment.   For candid/photojournalism the ability to get in tight and shoot wide at 14 over say the 16  is huge...

You should read Thom's review as he has a few funny comments about the lenses and people's thoughts.
