I take pictures of all kinds of things (people, landscapes, macro shots, etc), but I tend to use my 50mm prime the most.

Get the 24-70 first then. Personally I prefer the 24-120 for it's extra range; this makes it more useful to me. The 24-70 is quite a useful close-up lens and its f2.8 so you might prefer that.

24 isn't very wide on DX though. I'd prefer a 17-50. My comments above relate to my D700. I know you plan to get a wider lens too but I like my standard zoom to be wider than 24.

On that note, I wouldn't get a 14-24 on DX either. For less money you can get a wider lens with more range and still good quality.
