What reason do you think makes the Nikon 24~70 less good for walkabout? The same might apply to the Sigma. It's up to you which aspects you most need.

For me I chose the 24~120 for it's versatility and relatively light weight. I had also owned a 28~70mm f2.8 but sold it. It wasn't long enough for events and it was heavy as a walkabout (and not long enough). Vr can be useful too, though I don't see it as essential. I don't have f2.8 but if I need a fast lens I have several primes in the same range.
