Foto-info.si published their full review in English of the new Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lens that includes full resolution photos (incl. sharpness and distortion samples):

The lens is large, the weight doesn't represents such a great problem, as the fact that it is necessary to get used to almost 180mm long lens. News by Nikon installed in the lens are welcomed, in particular, a great and incredibly fast autofocus system, as well as excellent image stabilization system. The picture quality is excellent, especially the sharpness is excellent at all focal lengths, only slightly decrease in 70mm.

Vignetting may be less, optical curvature of the image is also a great corrected for zoom lens with such range. Surprisingly slightly worse sharpness in close-ups, but this lens anyway not intended for use in macro photography.

The Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lens is currently available for pre-order at B&HAdoramaAmazon and WEX (UK). Shipping is scheduled to start on August 27th.

Update: here is a quick comparison between the 24-120mm f/4 lens and the new 24-70mm f/2.8E.
