It's curious you mention the "nay-sayers" because there's something similar in the Canon camp, regarding the 24-105 f/4.

It has the occasional bad rap when, the one I own at least, is an awesome performer, specially when the price is taken into account...

I see that photozone.de gives 2 and 1/2 stars to the Nikon and 3 stars to the Canon, so it might very well exist the same "practical use" not taken into account misconception, regarding the Nikon.

Although the 24-120mm doesn't tend to do too well in the numerical tests (they tend to report not so wonderful corner sharpness wide open), those that own it seem to like it a lot - a few on here said it was close enough to their 24-70mm f/2.8 that they sold the more expensive lens(!).  From what I've seen, the tests of the Canon 24-105mm L seem to indicate it has similar qualities/characteristics.

Hope your friend gets a lens they like.
