Yes, the 24-70 mm f/2.8 is about 50% more expensive, and even at that price itís by no means a Ďperfectí lens. There are always compromises, no matter how much money you throw at a problem.
I just think Don (the topic starter) should handle the 24-120 mm f/4 before plunking down $1300 for it, since he already owns the 24-70 mm f/2.8 and might have higher expectations than most people.
Then again, people donít often complain about the play in the focus ring of the 24-120 mm f/4, even though it would drive me nuts in live-view manual focus. It shouldnít matter when using autofocus.
