Whenever I get a new camera, I just go through the menu and configure the shooting and custom settings the same way I had them set on the previous model. It doesn't take very long, so it is not a big deal.

I have and use both lenses on DX and FX bodies. On a DX body, there is very little advantage to be gained by upgrading to the VR II. On an FX body, the VR II is sharper across the field and in the corners than the VR I.

The 14-24mm is optically superb. You will not be disapointed.
