Carbon Fork

I've been considering a few different road bikes with a steel frame for my next purchase. One of them being a Lemond Zurich with a carbon fork, as well as an Italian frame with a steel fork. Can anyone offer an opinion on carbon vs steel forks with respect to handling and ride?

Carbon is the way to go. It will be very stiff for out of the saddle climbs yet very light. It is just as durable as a steel fork and will absorb bumps, etc incredibly well. Go carbon, you will not regret it. The Zurich is an incredible riding frame and they wouldn't spec it out with a carbon fork for no reason.
