nikon 24-120 F4 vs. 17-55 F 2.8 sharpness?

I want to get an idea of the image quality of the 24-120 F4. I know reviews and comments have been varied. Also, sharpness is subjective among users. Has anyone USED BOTH the 17-55 2.8 dx and the 24-120 F4 FX and can thus compare?

The 17-55 produces a wonderful 3D feeling image, great contrast, and its images give you a wonderful real life presentation. The sparkle in your subject's eye makes you feel like you are looking right at them. Will the 24-120 F4 give me the same feeling?

I sold my 18-200 dx and the older two versions of the 24-120. They were convenient focal lengths, but not as sharp as the 17-55.
I have a D800 on order.

Thanks

Nikon D800
