Im frankly not sure why anybody would buy the 24120 over the 105 macro, or vice versa.

Both can take nice portraits, but the primary functionality of each is wildly different and not overlapping. The 24-120 has exceptional performance near MFD.

Typical looking 24-120 portraits at F4, definitely good for showcasing the environment, youre never going to get that completely blurred out background unless you get pretty close to MFD at 120mm.

In my case, I have the 24-70mm f/2.8 S and the 70-200mm f/2.8 S, and both do not allow for a 1:2 or 1:3 magnification. I'don't need 1:1 magnification, and don't want the associated problems with shadows from the lens, extremely shallow depth of field etc. So I'm thinking about replacing my 24-70 f/4 S, which I don't use that much now, with the 24-120mm f/4 S - as a landscape and travel photo with some macro capability.

Not a bad plan. You might be shocked at how much use you get out of it once you start playing with it.
