there is a reason why both Nikon and Canon choose not to put IS in their 24-70 f/2.8 professional lenses.

Weight, size and price?  The Nikon 24-70 is already a big and expensive piece of glass.  After all, they put VR in their 70-200f/2.8 professional zoom, and even upgraded it to VRII, and I haven't heard any complaints nor seen any problems with my copy.

If you need stabilization in a 24-70mm professional lens, you're not a professional. I shoot with a Canon FD 85mm f1.2L hand-held at f4 routinely at 1/15th. No big deal. Would love to have it in my 80-200mm f2.8 Nikon pro zoom - but have done without it for many years.
