"This is the very reason why Nikon only equips its slower lenses with VR."
Not really. 70-200 2.8 VR. 200 2.0 VR, and 105 2.8 VR. I believe Nikon equips those lenses they make with VR where they believe they will most benefit the pro or the ameture.
I believe Nikon would have put VR in the 24-70 (it would have been perfect then) but it probably would have been a $2,500 lens at the time. Now with Canon introducing a 24-70 IS you can bet Nikon will be about 1 year behind.
