"D5200 kit lens choice or 24-120 f4"


Philpot, US
          

I'm about to purchase the D5200 I believe. Coming most recently from the 5dmk3. That camera is a brick and I do not enjoy shooting with it for that reason. I am looking for a light weight option but still excellent image quality. I have shot DX and FX and tend to prefer DX for about 80% of what I shoot.

My question is, would you consider the 18-105 kit lens or 24-120 f4? I realize the advantages of the 24-120 in that it is constant f4 and also can be fully appreciated on an FX body if I add one in the future. It is much more expensive though. Considering image quality as the only bias, would I notice a big difference between the two? I will also be getting the 70-200 f4 and 50 1.8.

Appreciate any insight!

Beth
