The classic standard zoom now featuring Vibration Reduction image stabilization, Nikon's AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR Lens is a truly versatile wide-angle to short telephoto lens characterized by its constant f/2.8 maximum aperture and electromagnetic aperture mechanism. A revised optical design incorporates a unique aspherical extra-low dispersion element, in addition to three aspherical, two extra-low dispersion, and one high refractive index elements, to help reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range in order to achieve high image sharpness and clarity. The Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings further benefit image quality by reducing lens flare for improved contrast and color accuracy and fluorine coatings on the front and rear elements protect against dust, moisture, and smudging.

The go-to lens
Versatility, speed and durability
24-70mm is the sweet spot of the zoom range for many photographers, great for everything from landscapes and studio work to weddings and press events. The f/2.8 constant aperture allows for faster shutter speeds to freeze fast action, renders a beautiful bokeh blur and performs brilliantly in low light. Add an electromagnetic diaphragm for fast auto-exposure control plus the protection of Nikon's fluorine coat on the front and rear glass, and you've got the ultimate workhorse for nearly any situation.

Capture sharp, steady handheld stills and HD videos, and shoot at slower shutter speeds in low-light situations without sacrificing sharpness. Versatility, enhanced.

Only downside is that I had to buy a new 82mm UV filter since my old one was 77mm. Need to also buy a new circular polarizer. Not enough of a downside to knock off a star though.
Picture quality wise, I tried taking pictures with both my Tamron and this Nikon, and the difference was negligible. Of course my review is very non-scientific, but I do like the VR very much. I took a picture at 1/2 second of a piece of paper without VR, and of course, it was very blurry. I took the same picture with VR on, and it was almost perfectly readable. I took a second picture ,and it was 100% readable. Overall, the VR was very good! I would say at least 3-4 stops easily. Autofocusing is very fast......faster and more predicable than the Tamron.
Overall, if you are on a budget, I would highly recommend the Tamron which also has VR and I have been using it for more than 1 year. The only problem with the Tamron is autofocus. It will focus perfectly 98% of the time, but you will miss a picture 2% of the time, whereas, with my nikon lens, autofocus is almost 100%. I am not a pro, so I don't mind the 1-2% miss rate.
If you are looking to see whether you should upgrade if you have the non-VR Nikon lens, my opinion is a definite yes. Most people don't think VR will help, until they use it. Before, without my Tamron, I was very nervous using my nikon indoors without flash. There was always a chance of blur. With this new lens, I am very confident using it shutter at 1/30 or even 1/15. At speed under this, I am still able to get some very sharp images, but I would check and possibly take a second picture to be sure.
In conclusion, VR is highly recommended. If you are on a budget, get the Tamron. If you are thinking whether you need to upgrade to VR, I highly recommend you do. This is a very nice, but expensive lens.
I am an amateur photographer who shoots with a Nikon D7200. This is my second lens with VR. For those who often shoot handheld, I highly recommend getting lenses that offer VR. You will notice a substantial gain in image quality and an increase in the number of keeper photos.
I'm a hobbyist so, nothing pro. My impression is the VR is a tremendous asset for me. I notice better all around better sharpness throughout the image from the old model. a little less center sharpness than my 50mm 1.8 and 70-200 2.8 when wide open, but a landscape shot stopped down is better than I've ever had.
**December 2015 Update**
I've had this now for over a month and I absolutley love it! It's been off my D750 only once.
There have been reports of focus shift on this lens, and I've experienced it a couple of times when zomming in tight while physically close to an object. I researched the term on Google and came a cross an article that remedied the focus shift of this lense by switching from the view finder to the LCD screen-then auto focusing. I tired it and it seemed to work for me. Not an ideal solution, but thought that it might help others experiencing the issue more often than others.
