Shot the D300 and D7100 for 11 years. Picked-up a pristine low-click D810 on Craigslist about 18 months ago. I had some nice DX lenses for walkaround -- the 12-24 (very good) and the 17-55 (very good). Liked both of them on DX. I also had the 24-70G -- but even on DX the edges were pretty fuzzy. It was a no-go on the D810. So... I needed a walkaround lens. If you get a good copy, I really think the 24-120 is hard to beat. My copy is very good. I am enjoying it. I picked-up the 20/1.8 -- and it is "good" but I am not as pleased with it as I thought I would be -- dealing with some signficant CA that is difficult to correct in post. I am not dialed-in to the 3rd party lens offerings... but I believe there are many good options in that regard. Again, a good copy of the 24-120 is hard to beat.
