You've got some great lenses.

I have 11 Nikon and Canon lenses that cover 85mm.   Probably too many.

However, for your needs there is something to say for the 24-120/4 G.   No lens changing, for one thing.   If your output needs are not unusual, the 24-120, usually stopped down a bit, could be mighty convenient and a very fine lens.

Don,t you think f5.6 is rather limited for creative portrait on 120mm?
