Having just purchased a D800 I'm going through my lenses trying to decide which to keep and which to practically give away on eBay. How well does the 24-85 VR compare to the 24-120 vrII in the same focal length range? If the 24-120 is clearly better, I'll pick one up as a everyday lens but that title goes to the 24-85vr for now. Also complicating this decision are the reviews that state the 24-85 vr is better and others that state the 24-120 vrII is clearly better. Which one is it? Whichever lens I end up with it'll be part of my 4 lens travel kit consisting of the 50 f/1.4g, 24 -85 or 120 vrII, 70-300 vrII or possibly the 70-200 f/4 VRIII and a wide angle zoom, haven't chosen one yet but I'm leaning towards the 16-35 vr. And lastly a SB-800 speedlight.
