Looking at this lens used (of course) and wondering if it has been so eclipsed by the newer 24-70mm 2.8 G that I would be unhappy in comparison. Cost matters, but optics REALLY matter. Interested in sharpness and bokeh, and auto focusing ability.

ALSO: this lens has an aperture ring. In shooting video on the D600 will this permit adjustment of aperture during shooting (like when panning into a darker - or lighter - area)? I have no aperture lens to try on my D600. How would this work? When I tried such a lens in the shop, it flashed "EE" and refused to work in still mode, unless I set it to f22. Did not think to try it in video. Shop no longer has it to try - and I did a search before this query - so please do not flame me.

Does LR 4 have a lens correction profile for this lens? I do not see one. Any work arounds for this? Female subjects seem to complain about 28mm "making my face look fat". So, I correct in LR4 for the 24-85mm "kit" lens.
