Should I buy a nikon 14-30 s lens for upcoming trip?

Hi all- I notice the above lens is on special offer in the UK.The cheapest I can find it in the UK is £949.

It seems quite a considerable drop since it was first introduced ,I dont know if any of this is due to  worries about variations in lens quality due to de- centering etc or just down to a slump in the market and maybe they are not flying off the shelves.Is this sale price a more realistic price for this lens.I also wonder if the price will drop again before May.

I am very tempted to purchase one for a upcoming Japan trip next May,or whether just to stick with my 24-70 f4, could be a handy lens to have for those shrines  and temples and tight city shots and the odd landscape.Would be nice to hear opinions of people who have visited Japan and what they used .I feel a wide angle could be handy but don't want to lug stuff around un- necessarily many thanks in advance for everyone's help.
