Greetings All,
I am new to this site and I noticed from the posting on "if you were to take only one lens" that many members mention the 24-70mm f2.8 and the 24-120 f4 as their favourite one stop lens. I have a new D600 upgraded from a D300s. I used to use a DX 18-200mm for travel and general purpose one lens shooting. I also have f1.8 50mm & 85mm, an 2.8 80-200mm which I use for indoor and outdoor sports and a f2.8 105mm micro for macro. I need a replacement for the 18-300mm which gave me good results and I was looking at the FX 28-300mm. I have read so much pros and cons on various sites that I am confused. A lot of this debate was back a few years so not much recently. The post on this site I mentioned before made me wonder if things have changed in the last few years re: the 28-300mm, knowing its short comings and if the 24-120mm f4 VRII or 24-70mm f2.8 would be higher quality choices for my needs. Are the differences that big between the three for sharpness and quality? Many thanks for any input you can share.
