My daily carry is a 10-20 and a 70-200vr along with a Tamron 90mm for macro.

I'd really like something to fill the 20-70 gap (or most of it anyway). I'd really like it to be a constant 2.8 stop though.

Should I fork over the cash for a Nikon 24-70 or are there good alternatives for me?

I'd like to go FF in the future, but it probably won't happen for quite a while.

The tamron 28-75 f/2.8 is a fantastic lens if you don't mind the slower and louder focusing motor. I had one but sold it to buy the 24-70. The difference in IQ between the two is negligible.

How slow are we talking?

I want to shoot myself in the head when ever my Tamron 90mm tries to focus.

used 28-70 f/2.8 is going to be a great choice if you don't want to spend the money for a 24-70 f/2.8

I like my nikon 35-70 2.8
It's the push/pull one...i had to get used to it at first (like 10 mins), but it's now it's like second nature to me.
The only thing I don't like about it is that it sometimes searches in low light.
