The new Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR Lens was originally expected to be released on August 27th, 2015. Currently, many US Stores haven’t updated the release date. It is still “this item will be released on August 27, 2015”.
So, the new Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR Lens will be released in October 2015.
