With my limited experience comparing the 18-70DX lens that came with my D70 and my old 24-120D on the D70, I prefer the 24-120D. The 24-120D is heavier but if I have to pick one lens for travel it has greater range, seems to do a better job with saturation and sharpness. It dosen't have the wider angle but the difference between 27mm and 36mm I can live with. Any thoughts?

That is a interesting observation. I am thinking about buying the newer VR version. For my use a 36-180 35mm equivalent will be perfect for day to day use. I sold my 18-70mm as I already had a 24-85mm and I still sometines find its tele end a little short.
