Option 2: Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G AF-S
- Excellent optics
- High re-sale value
- More expensive
- No image stabilization
I'm sure I will annoy some Nikon fan boys by placing the Tamron 24-70 above the Nikon, but it's the truth. It's less expensive and has vibration reduction while being right on par with the Nikon 24-70. Just get the Tamron. You won't regret it.
