"RE: Bidget v price v expectation"

Obviously the 24-70 is going to out perform the 24-120 at the maximum apertures of the 24-120 but unless shooting into the light (the 24-70 has nano coating) at f8-f11 sharpness and resolution are the near identical.
The 24-70 is less than half the price, has a wider zoom range and has VR - but cannot be used at f2.8
Which combination of features YOU want determines which lens is likely to be best for you.

Photography is a bit like archery. A technically better camera, lens or arrow may not hit the target as often as it could if the photographer or archer does not practice enough.
