The 24-70 VR is a landscape choice at least for many, and now in back order in Japan. G is recommended officially for portrait. G2 is the best for money. Personally I picked the G2 for its VC and kept the G after a decade service.

G is famous for its fragile zoom mechanism. The current copy is actually a like-new lens from Nikon factory after I sent in a dropped one. They did not bother to repair it. As well they sent back the parts with original serial number as a souvenir.

VR is better than G2 at f2.8. But I prefer the f2.8 of G. Most of the time the corner is not a big concern, the VR/VC is, especially for D850.

Pick the VR if you only need one. If you already have the G, pick the G2.
