You're generalizing quite a bit.

I owned several copies of the 28-300 and none of them measured up.  I started with the Tamron and two copies of disappointment I went to the Nikon when that came out.  I kept none of them.  They were noticably worse than the 24-120 or even the Tamron 28-75 (which is dirt cheap and very light, since you said you prefer that).

FWIW, the 28-300 is the only lens I have bought and not kept.
