Having owned two of these lenses (like a fool I sold my first copy and ended up buying another one), I can strongly recommend it. Go to Photozone and compare it to the 24-70 f/2.8 and you'll discover that this lens is sharper at some focal lengths and apertures than the 24-70. IMHO, this lens is an absolute steal at what Steve is asking and I wouldn't trade mine for two copies of the AFS version.
Nikon builds 3 grades of lenses:
-kit like the 18-anything, 28-300 and the 24-85 AFS
-pro quality in most but not all respects like this 24-85 D
-pro quality like the 24-70 f/2.8
