Folks

I'm struggling to try and decide which lens to get for the D700.

Narrowed it down to one of these two.
Ken R***well seems to think only an idiot would get the 24-120 as the other is just as good and also goes to 300.

(I've already got a 70-300VR but rarely use it as the Bigma/ 300s gets all the proper tele work).

I also got the old 24-120D and quite like it, but often seem to be at 120. I very much like the lens' smallish physical size.

I find myself inclined to get the 24-120 but KRs words keep ringing in my ears!

I'd be using this as the 'standard' lens with this camera, ie the lens that's on the camera most of the time. Pix of kids, cats, local stuff etc. General stuff.

I read that the 28-300 has slow AF and that the 24-120 IQ is better- but would I ever notice?

What to do?
