Re: Just ordered the 24-120mm f/4....after long consideration....

But a walk around it aint! Still, it makes a very nice pairing with the Nikon 24-85vr.

But isn't the subject isolation you'd get from 120mm better than you'd get from 85mm ? A 70~300 is not an option for what I want to use the 24~120 for but the 24~85 is too short for my liking.

You are correct. But what stopped me from buying the 24-120 was that the longer end was STILL not long enough compared to my 24-70 (now sold) or the 24-85vr. So it would be either a lens like the 28-300vr or two lenses for my needs. I'm really not at the wide end all that much. Eventually I'll probably pick up a 28-300vr for walk around duty.

The lens snobs won't like it, but sometime we have to be practical!
