Howard - I agree the old 24-120 was softer, especially the edges. I was pretty satisfied with it on my D200, but when I shifted to a D700, edge definition was visibly lower. I'm not talking about photographing test charts and brick walls. So I bit the bullet for the 24-70mm f2.8. The new 24-120 was at least a year away when I made that choice, but I do love the 24-70 and have no thoughts of changing to the newer 24-120, although I sort of envy that extra 50mm sometimes. BTW, if you wanted to see a soft Nikon zoom, the old 43-86 was such a dog you could hear it barking in your camera bag. Even through the viewfinder, it approached sharp and then drifted out the other side, never having achieved sharp focus! Sometimes I wish I had another one to remind me of how far optics have come! May it rest in peace.
