I would wait and see what the just announced Tokina 70-200mm f4 looks like. I have a very good copy of the Tokina 28-80mm f2.8 which I originally purchased in 2002 for my F100. At the time it was 40% of the cost of the Nikon 28-70mm f2.8 and about 95% of the optical performance, and easily the equal mechanically. It required +11 fine focus adjustment on my D600, but has become my main lens. I would not be surprised if the new Tokina comes in at 60% of the cost of the new Nikon and nearly matches it optically.
