Good everyday lens for Nikon D610?

I bought Nikon D610 and I am looking for a general purpose lens. Would like to get some feedback from the community.

Nikon 24-85mm F3.5-4.5 VR vs $599

+ Appears to be decent lens

+ Lighter compared to Sigma

+ Good resale value?

- 85mm compared to 105 from Sigma

Sigma 24-105mm F4 $899

+ Const F4

+ Good Range

- Heavy

- Expensive compared to 85mm

I took on photography as a hobby and mostly take pics during gatherings and travels I do. So my use is very casual.

I took some test shots from both the lenses with same settings and It was really hard to tell difference between the pics. Sigma appears to have really good reviews but Nikon's 24-85mm isn't bad either.

Please share your thoughts and help me decide please.

Thank you,

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm F3.5-4.5G ED VR Nikon D610 Sigma 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM
