I always appreciated this lens... it focuses SO FAST! And with the addition of VR it became even more fantastic than the G version.

But, it's crazy heavy, doesn't focus very close to objects, and 70mm isn't really very long at all. I actually enjoy using the 24-120 f/4 a lot more. The range is far more useful for my photography than having 2.8 is, it's about a lb lighter, and if it ever breaks they're on eBay for like $500 all day long!

But if you want the 2.8 VR, then my friend you absolutely deserve it and will surely enjoy it. Go for it.
