All-around lens for new Nikon D800, 24-120mm or 28-300mm?

I am going to buy a new Nikon D800. I need an all-around lens as start point, I am going to choose between following tow lenses:

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR Zoom Lens ($996)

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens ($896)

Nikon is running lens instant rebate so the 24 - 120mm is $300 off and 28 - 300mm is $150 off. Money is not the main concern here. Which one I should choose? I read lots of good reviews on both and some of them suggest to choose 28 - 300mm over 24 - 120mm.

Thanks in advance!
