Not sure what to make of all that. Simple answer is if you are seeing a clear difference between the 24-70 and 24-120 f4, you probably need to have your 24-120 looked at. I see an incredibly minor difference in the center at f4 but the edges on the 24-120mm more than make up for it. By f5.6 I see no difference. The 24-70 does have a tiny bit more contrast too but it is so little that I have no qualms recommending the 24-120mm f4.


The samples posted above from the 24-120 are horrible, clearly visible at web size. My copy is waaaaaay sharper than that. Have it serviced, you'll be blown away by the difference.

My 70-200 2.8 VRii had similar issues from new - major FF. Had it adjusted, now its razor sharp. No lens is immune from QC problems.
