24-120 AF-D (non-VR) / 28-200 AF-D vs. 28-105

  1. Does anyone else enjoy using these "older" lenses? I just picked them both up from a friend and really enjoy the feel of them on my D300. Something about the construction vs. the newer plastic counterparts. Also, the colors seem a little more "real." Don't get me wrong, I love, love, love my 24-70, but for lighter travel alternatives, the 18-200 was a pure disappointment. Seems like one of these two may fit the bill. Also, I have read alot about the 28-105. Has anyone any experience with the 28-105 vs. either of these two?
     
  2. I own the 24/120 AF-D and call it a decent lens. I took it to the Sturgis rally in '05 and made a few hundred OK photos, but have wished I had taken the 28/70 AF-S for better images. I own and have tried to like the 28/105 but it just does not ring my bell, but many on this forum really like it.

  3. The 24-120 AFD is a decent very usable lens on DX, but not acceptable wide open on FX. On FX, it's a nice lens in daylight stopped down.
