Good lens, but "a good" 24-70 is sharper...

Have both and the VR is very fine for what it brings at that price. Compared to my first 24-70 from 2008 (307xxx SN) it's less sharp, but my 24-70 focusses bad with the left AF sensor. So I decided to get a new 24-70. Tried 3 samples (79xxxx to 80xxxx SNs) and two focused fine with all AF sensors, one had problems with the right. All three were optical inferior to my first sample. Don't know how this goes on.

BTW the 24-120 shows some frontfocus in the long end, but since this happens with all my Nikon zooms on all my cameras it's hardly worth to mention, nothing special...
