It really comes down to what you value more, image quality or versatility. The 24-70 has significantly better image quality but the 24-120, with the extra 50mm gives you a lot more options. Plus it has VR. I shot both side by side in Antarctica last year and the IQ is very much better on the 24-70 at the widest focal lengths and equalizes out but is still in favor of the 24-70 by the time you get to 70mm. So, as I said, it depends on what you need more. Certainly the 24-120 is capable of giving you excellent results, just not quite as good as the 24-70 until you need to go longer than 70mm.
