Nikon 24-85VR V 24-120 Real world test

Not very sientific but I wanted to test which to keep, I don't recommend anyone doing theses test it nearly sent me mad!!!

I think my conclusion is the 24-120 is sharper in the middle certainly at 24mm and the 24-84 is just a bit better across the frame and outer edges, but that could just be my copy.

Having taken lots of images I don't think the 24-120 gives much more for twice the price and twice the weight.

Warning don't look if you don't like washing!!!!!
