Get a Nikkor 28-300

... it's a perfect lens for holidays on FX body.

24-120 does not give the same flexibility as the 28-300.

I don't see any point of owing 24-120, it's not as good as the 24-70, and not as flexible as 28-300.

28-300 is very sharp for its range, has a good contrast also. The compromises are mostly in the distorion deprtment, vigneting and being a slow lens, but it's hardly noticed, especially on holiday snaps.

For some images I have to look at the exif data to see if it was done with my 24-70 or 28-300, it's that good.
