    That's not true.

    Nikon do have several weather-sealed lenses, including the following:

    AF-S 105/2.8 VR
    AF-S 70-200/2.8 VR
    AF-S 200/2.0 VR
    AF-S 200-400/4.0 VR
    AF-S 300/2.8 VR

    What are you talking about?

    Dpreview.com explicitly bans for sale posts in the forums.

    If there's someone posting an ad for sale, they're breaking the rules.

    Can you post some samples?

    Unless you're shooting a D2X, you should be fine up to ISO 640 (and 800 should be fine most of the time as well). In addition, if you're not a pixel-peeper, even 1600...

    Why do you want to go for the 24-70?

    I have the 18-70, and I wouldn't trade it in for the 24-70.

    Advantages of the 18-70:
    - longer range--those 6mm at the wide end are substantial
