I genuinely want to know why people are getting excited about VR on a 16-35 lens? I can hold my 24-70 at 70 and my 50mm primes without any sort of dedicated effort and get sharp pictures. Do people want to shoot hand held at low light or is there some other reason why people want VR at such short focal lengths?

If a 16-35 2.8 VR comes out, I would be one of the first to pre-order it.  I don't want to carray a tripod, but I want to shoot landscape in the golden hour.  VR will help me.
