Hi All.

Im a newbie and I'm trying to decide which system to buy. I've been a Canon user my whole life and I've used a 20D and a 40d and L glass however i have rid myself of all Canon gear and I'm ready to take the Nikon plunge. I consider myself and enthusiastic amature with room to grow. Im looking for a great system with one "walk around" lens (for now) to take pics of my family and specifically to take on an upcoming month long trip to California. I've narrowed my search down to the D300 and the D700. My question is this:
What would give me better quality photos, a D300 with Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 ED-IF AF-S or a D700 with Nikon 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR? This is my budget.

I prefer to travel with just one lens. Also, aside from these two lenses, i am open to any suggestions for other lense combinations and even 3rd party lenses.

thanks
jeff.
