Thanks All! Okay, I plan to swap my 24-120.

I've read so many reviews my head is spinning. I'll share my research for what it's worth. All prices are current B&H Imported.

First, I am only considering the options with aperture rings, b/c I "heart" my FE2.

Consensus? Only that 28-70mm f2.8D AFS ($1390) is the best, and I can't afford it. It is the strong opinion of this group (not consensus) that the 28-105mm f3.5-4.5D ($300) is the best for the money. Also, this group (and many others) don't like the 24-120mm f3.5-5.6D, and it is expensive ($435). Most agree that the 35-70mm f2.8D has superb optics. It is probably superior optically to and certainly is faster than the 28-105, but its almost twice the money ($570) and it's a push/pull zoom. The 24-85mm f2.8-4.0D, at $475 is the middle ground between cost of the 35-70 f2.8 and the 28-105, and possibly the middle ground optically. No one hates it, but then no one champions it either.

NO, I have not decided. But thanks for your comments.
