Does the model `gpt-4-vision-preview` have function calling?

So I gave up and wrote a function.

With hindsight this has one huge advantage: you can use a cheaper LLM to hold the general conversation and restrict calls to GPT 4 Vision for just image analysis.

UPDATE: looks like Open AI not only released an updated preview model with vision with function calling but also created a new alias for gpt-4-turbo which has vision!

My solution is still a good one because it keeps the costs down.
