The new 24-120 is just as bad as the first one.  I don't know if it's
been redesigned optically, but it is cosmetically different and has
AF-S and VR.  When I tested a Nikon D700 that was the lens that Nikon
sent with the camera.  I thought something was wrong with the camera
until I tried it with some better glass.

I agree on VR; it's great.  It's just a shame that subject movement
makes it less useful for what I do, but a camera with built-in
anti-shake and good f1.4 lenses would be nice.
