2) VR only matters when things aren't moving and in those cases using a tripod with VR OFF will yield better results anyway. F4 and VR won't do what the 70-200 2.8 can do.

It's funny to hear you say this after singing the praises of VR on wide/normal zoom lenses. I'm sure your justification is that the 70-200 is a people/sports lens, not a landscape lens but the lens you were so adamantly claiming needs VR (the Nikon 24-70) is pretty much the epitomy of a people lens. And you traded that lens for a slower (and variable) aperture lens with VR.

Are you trolling or what?
