Re: Going to Italy...24-85VR or 24-70 2.8 or 28-300 VR?

Thanks for the suggestions. Seems like the 28-300 is out. the 24-120 has been thorwn into the mix, though I've read mixed reviews on that lens but haven't had any personal experience with it. It's not cheap and I would really have to be able to love it if I were to spend over $1k.

I appreciate the comments on the wide end being the more important end for this type of trip. I thought 24 would be wide enough but am now thinking maybe I should also pick up a wide prime (20mm maybe? is that wide enough?) in addition to either the 24-85, 24-70 (though the weight is starting to scare me a bit more) or the 24-120.
