Mark,

I think it is really a silly comparison, they are 2 different lenses for 2 different purposes.

The 24-70 (either one) is a constant aperture wide the medium zoom useful when a faster aperture is desired, mainly for DOF purposes.

The 24-200 is a convenience lens when you are willing to trade fast aperture (again, primarily DOF) for the convenience of a Superzoom. DOF isn't important.

Fast aperture these days is mostly a DOF issue, modern cameras' higher ISO performance can overcome the lower light gathering. But you can't get f/4 DOF with a f/6.3 lens.
