24-85mm f/2 VR

$2999

Increased range, faster by a full stop, and adding VR all for $1100 more? You don't even get a full stop for a prime for that money (reference 35/1.4 vs. 35/2, and 85/1.4 vs. 85/1.8), let alone the other wishes. For zooms, the closest comparable lenses would be the 70-200/2.8 VRII and the 70-200/4 VR. The loss of a stop in that case took $1000 off the price alone. So a 24-70/2 could theoretically cost $2900 but I'm thinking closer to $4000 for the extra 15mm and VR.

The size might be a bit annoying but it's a lens I'd love to have too (but not in the market for at realistic prices)!
