Re: 24-70 with or w/o VR?

I have no experience with the Nikon 24-70, but I own the Tamron 24-70 VC which I use with my D7000.  I am thrilled with the performance of the lens.  I had to replace the first copy I received as it was soft across the whole frame (not a back or front focusing issue).  The second copy I received is excellent.

The only lens I own that doesn't have VC/VR is my Nikon 50mm f/1.4 G.  If I have the option to get a quality lens, or an equal quality lens with VC/VR - I will always choose the one with VC/VR.

Make sure you purchase from a company with a good return policy (I bought from Amazon which has excellent customer service).  Ensure you have a good copy and you will be grinning from ear to ear.  Tamron has a 6 year warranty.

Good luck with the purchase and let us know which one you choose.
