Is this the reason why you are not buying it?

Quite honestly I'm amazed it was never released with it? anyone else know if this is going to happen, is it that big of a deal?

Just wondering, did you buy it or is the lack of VR preventing you from buying it?  I don't think this lens or focal range needs VR.  Sure, it would be nice if it had it, but the lens is top notch and amazing!  I just bought it this past weekend, i am speechless at the type of built quality alone, i can't say much more, is a PRO lens.  Now i completely understand why it cost so much.  I bought it for $700 bucks.  This is probably the best investment i have ever done for my DX gear.  Right now i am using it on my Fuji S5 and i am looking into getting a nikon 24MP camera one of these days.  Hope you enjoy the samples bellow taken at my daughter's school field trip at Pasadena Descanso Gardens.
