I guess noone argues the primes give better IQ and speed. But, personally, I need a mid zoom. Have I been a tele shooter I guess I would find a tele zoom a must have too. A zoom is a compromise and all, I agree, but there are times I prefer a correct frame with medium IQ over a bad frame with high IQ. Maybe it's just me.
Still think the 24-120 asks too much for what it offers though. The longer end, on the other hand, is not bad. A test drive is a must have I guess.
