Z 24-70/2.8 S vs Z 24-120/4 S - tough decision.

First new to Nikon/Nikkor. Currently I have the Z 24-70/2.8 S which I luckily found used to support my new Z9. The Z9 came several months earlier than expected so that was what I have. In the mean time I was originally thinking about getting the Z 24-120/4 S since I was building the kit for wildlife and BIF. Today B&H notified me that the are shipping me the 24-120/4 S copy I ordered. It’s been a 3.5 month wait.
So now I’m trying to decide what to do. If this were my only system I would keep both since I really consider them different lenses with the 23-70/2.8 more for events.

Have to admit when I got the 24-70/2.8 I was super impressed and really liked it better than my Sony GM version so I sold that. It’s a great lens. So now do I

a) keep both

b) sell 24-70/2.8, keep the new 24-120/4

c) return/ sell the 24-120/4 and stay with 24-70/2.8 S

Admit I tend to think of them as different lenses just don’t know how much event work I will use the Z9 for. One other note. Still waiting on my Z 100-400/4.5-5.6 VR S I ordered at the same time as the 24-120/4.

Thanks in advance.
