I went from D200 to D700 and now awaiting D800. If I were you I'd do the same. I sold my D700 and 24-70/f2.8 and got top dollar for them before value dropped. I spoke with a very good pro that had recently began using the Nikon 24-120/f4 on his D3x in lieu of the heavy 24-70/2.8 and stated he loved the combo so that's what I am going with when the D800 is released.

IMHO I wouldn't have sold the 24-70 and taken the $ hit, esp since it's fine for the future FF bodies., as long as you won't need F2.8. The 24-120 isn't a light lens either. In fact it's nearly 78% of the weight of the 24-70. 708g vs 902g.
