One thing that hasn't been mentioned is that there are two models of 24-120.

There is a fixed aperture 24-120 f/4 which is probably your best bet f you really can't cope with a 24-70, but there's an older variable aperture 24-120 which is crap and to be avoided.

they are 3 !

the 24-120 3.5/5.6 VR is way better than the first non VR version, totally different optics.

It's not crap lense (the first is optically, but well built), can say a "good average" lense for the cost and range and VR

but the 24-120 f4 is way better than the 3.5-5.6 at wice the cost, but worth it
