17-55 f2.8 Replacement when going to Full-Frame
6 months ago

I'm considering replacing my D200/17-55 combination with a D700 and have got a thread going on the FX forum in which the weight of opinion suggests that I should trade the 17-55 for  a 24-70, rather than use the 17-55 on the D700.  However, that 24-70 is an expensive lens and I have been looking at the reviews on the new version of the 24-120 F4.

Would the D700/24-120 be a significant improvement on the D200/17-55?
