Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 is a great walk around lens...for me. I spent a whole day with it in Japan and I was able to capture all that I wanted. The only down side is it's really heavy! Too heavy to be carried around all day. I decided to rent a Nikon 24-120 f/4 and give it a try. The image quality is pretty good, heavy distortion though. The lens is lighter and has better zoom range for "walking around lens". However, its weight still isn't something I'd love to carry with me all day so I went with a Fuji X100.

I don't know about Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 HSM, but I have tried the cheaper version of it and I wasn't impressed. I'd rather save that money for a nice small prime.
