Also I'd buy Nikkor AF-S 24-70 VR with better performance on wide end (better vigneting and sharpness).

With VR in that lens, you will more likely get worse performance on wide, or any other, end. Why make it optically worse and larger than it needs to be?

Just look at the 16-35VR, perfect example why Nikon shouldnt put VR where it doesnt belong.

Nikkor 24-70 is rather big lens, so it has enough room to include VR lens group without making it much bigger. And as I know VR lenses don't degrade sharpness (much), but could add some flare (more reflactions), but Nikon's Nano coating seems to reduce this effect. So the question is do we need VR in this range. I think we do.

But I agree that 16-35/4 could live without VR. Nikon better would introduced 16-35/2.8 (which will come - I think - in 2-3 years). That's the reason I've bought 14-24.
