Exactly. The 24-120 f4 is the best lens for all around event photography (Nikon world). A very large percentage of my wedding reception work is done with flash. The extra reach of up to 120 along with the use of flash, covers such events perfectly. The 24-70 is a great lens, but it has its limits. I have both the 24-120 and the 28-70 2.8, bought years ago. The 24-120 is now on my primary camera. I also have an 85 (1.4D) which I have in my bag for events.
