I'm itchin' to spend my Christmas bonus, and I just can't decide on the 24-70 f2.8 or the newly released version of the 24-120 f4.
I admit, I'm leaning towards the 24-70, as EVERY review I've seen on it is very positive. It seems to be a proven lens.
However, the flexibility of the 24-120 is very appealing. I've got the older 24-120, and it's definitely a disappointing lens. The newer f4 VRII version is supposed to be an improvement.
Anybody who has both of these lenses have an opinion? IS the 24-70 really that much better optically to justify the additional $$$, and the shorter tele length?
I'd be using it on a D700, and I would like to be sure that the lens I use is good enough to get professional results (even if my skills aren't there yet!!)
Thanks All - Love this site!!
