Re: 24-70mm Tamron or Nikon opinion?

I have been going through a similar back and forth between the nikon 24-70, nikon 24-120 and the Tamron. I decided that I wanted f2.8 which excluded the Nikon 24-120. After reviewing site comparisons to the canon and seeing videos (the nikon guy and a fstoppers video review), I decided on the Tamron (it arrives today!).

The main reason was VR. But not for photos but for video. W/O VR, all the videos were shaky. With VR on the Tamron, the video is smooth. That makes a big difference. The cost difference between the Nikon 24-70 and Tamron (in the US) allowed me to also get the Nikon 85 f1.8 and Tamron 24-70 for the price of the Nikon 24-70.
