I'm considering getting this lens for my new D600. I was looking at the 24-120, but like the faster lens, apart from the increased weight.

I have two questions about this lens (sorry if they've already been asked):

- since this lens has been out for a few years, is it likely that a VR version will be released in the next year or so? I would hate to buy one, only to have a VR version released shortly afterwards.

- I'm wondering why there isn't a tripod mount on this lens, it seems quite heavy and, with the camera mounted on a tripod, I would think it'd put a lot of stress on the lens mount.

...Thanks!
