24-120 VR users: how is it in terms of color, contrast and bokeh?

You people who have used the 24-120 VR, can you please comment about how it compares in terms of color, contrast and bokeh qualities to other lenses, in particular to any or all of the following lenses?:

18-70 DX
18-200 VR
50 1.4 D
85 1.8 D

Also, if you know, what vintage is/was your 24-120? (More recent copies seem to be generally better, possibly due to improved Nikon manufacturing or quality control.)

Lots of threads have discussed sharpness at different apertures and focal lengths, but laying aside those issues, what do people think of the other image quality issues?

Thanks a bunch for any feedback.
