This is the specifications on the Nikkor 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6D lens from B&H...
By the sounds of this its a new model that will be packaged with the D700...
Nikon's new 24-120mm zoom lens is now even smaller than its predecessor,
the AF Zoom-Nikkor 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6D IF, and features an innovative Vibration Reduction (VR) system
that allows handheld telephoto zoom shooting even in poorly lit conditions.
The VR system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake,
and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed 3 stops (8 times) faster.
