Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 - buy it now?

Ever since I've upgraded to FF a god month ago I haven't been able to decide which midrangezoom I should buy. I've read tons of reviews and comments on this forum (thank you everyone) - 24-85, 24-70 both tamron and nikon, 24-120.

I'm looking at some really nice deals on the Nikon 24-70mm at 1250€ for a brand new model. Used market is more limited and I gues I don't want compromise as a used copy just is about 150-200€ cheaper and get wear and tear + no waranty.

But is it good timing to buy the Nikon 24-70mm right now? Sigma is supposed to come up with a update of their version and although no roumor probably also Nikon will come up with an update soner ro later. Should I go for the god offer now (saving 200€ on a brand new model) or should I wait and see - managing with primes? I guess I could survive for a while without a midrange zoom but I'd be missing this offer.
