I would be surprised if you could get away with a 24-120 with a wedding since it's an f/4. But I don't shoot weddings. Also, are you going to be using this lens combo on one or two bodies?

I shoot with a D7000 and was in the same lens debate situation. A 24-120 2.8 would be perfect for me. Since that doesn't exist, I decided that I needed 2.8 more than the extra focal length for the indoor no-flash pictures I like to take. f/4 wouldn't cut it for me.

I still may buy an 85 1.8g to complement my 24-70.
