Vacation lens choice

I'm going on a trip next month to San Diego and Las Vegas and looking to get a lens to pair with my newly traded for D700. In the past I used a D300 and 16-85 but want to take the D700 this time. The three lenses I'm looking at are the:
1) Tamron 28-75 2.8
2) Nikon 24-85 3.5-4.5
3) Nikon 28-105 3.5-4.5

I want to stay away from the 77mm lenses as I have a 28-70. I don't think I'll need 2.8 but is the Tamron IQ about the same as the two Nikons? I will be using a V1 also with the 10-30 and 30-110 so I don't need a really long zoom.
