The Sigma vignettes heavily at f/2.8 throughout the range.

With all due respect, I 'm not sure I would agree with that statement. I had a Sigma 24-70/2.8 for many years and never once had a problem with it. I recently went to a Nikon 24-70/2.8 but that was because of many other reasons.

The Cons of the lens were mainly the 82mm filter thread.  The focal length may be more suited to you of the 24-120 may be more suited to you but IMO there is nothing wrong with the Sigma.

Many of the photos here were taken with this lens http://www.pbase.com/windancer/novascotia and I had no complaints with it. I think the build quality of the Nikon lenses is maybe better than the Sigma's but

I don't have a 24-120 nor have I used that lens so I can't compare the two, I just wanted to say the Sigma lens served me well.Terry

Remember, it's not the CPU that's in your camera that makes great images, it's the one located about 4" behind the viewfinder that does.
