I did a search but couldn't find anything useful. I'm scrounging up to buy a couple serious lenses that will hopefully cure my GAS for lenses for I hope the next 10 years. I'm looking at picking up the Nikkor 24-70 2.8 and Nikkor 70-200 2.8VR. I will initially be using them with a D300 but will move to FF when appropriate for me. I am looking for you opinion(s) on two issues: 1. Does anybody think Nikon will add VR to the 24-70 within the next year? 2. Does anybody use this combination on their crop sensor and, if so, do you find the lack of focal range on the wide end restricting for portraiture, wedding, family shoots? I am confused as to why Nikon doesn't include VR on pro lenses under 70mm. Every little bit helps.
