The 70-300 would be the cheapest way to cover your range. You may want to give thought to how often you will need to change between the 24-85 and 70-300.

I recently purchased a D600. At the time of purchase, I had a very nice stable of higher quality DX lenses with my D90. With the D600, I chose to adopt FX as my mode of shooting, knowing this would result in a major change over of my lenses and recently sold 4 of the DX lenses.

I already had a 70-300 and 70-200 F2.8, but decided to get a more general purpose primary lens than the 24-85 for the D600. I bought the D600 kit that included the 28-300. I also picked up a used 24-120 F4. I plan to use the 24-120 as my "go to" landscape and inside lens and the 28-300 as my walk around snap shot lens. The 70-200 F2.8 will be used for sports. I will probably add a 16-35 F4 to cover the range my old Tokina DX 12-24 provided.

I am guessing the 70-300 will be used seldomly, if at all.

I know I have a lot of overlap in lenses. But, I find reducing or even eliminating the need to swap lenses when on a shoot to be a real plus. Most of my shooting does not lend itself to carrying a second body. I am also hoping to use the lenses in their sweet spots and when possible, not use them at their extremes where distortion and edge fall off becomes more noticeable.

PS- over Christmas, I shot a family portrait with the 24-120 and the D600. This was my first and only serious session with the D600. I was very pleased with the result - a noticeable improvement over the D90.
