The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED is the lens for Nikon event shooters, but its not a perfect performer.

  • +

    Great center sharpness throughout zoom range. Constant f/2.8 aperture.

  • -

    Edge performance suffers. Some distortion. Lacks optical stabilization. Pricey.

    Blisteringly quick and precise AF. MTF is consistently high.

Although not very exotic, the standard zoom covers a range most photographers couldn't do without. The Nikon 24-70mm performs as you would expect from a lens of this calibre and price.

  • +

    Excellent central resolution throughout the focal length range, Great contrast, Superb resistance to flare and ghosting

  • -

    Corner quality could be better, Rough zoom mechanism on this sample, Size – it is a long lens

Surprisingly, this $1,700 (street) lens is Nikon's first constant-aperture optic in the very popular, all-purpose, standard zoom category. Both of the company's previous pro and amateur 24-85mm lenses had variable apertures.

I'm going to buck the trend on this review. I doubt an amateur or semi-pro really has a need for this lens. It's overkill. Here's why-- It's a heavy lens which focuses in less time than most people will ever need. Some will say-- "I shoot sports.

    Expensive, Heavy

6 April 2015

This has been one of the lenses I have been saving for to add to my collection. I purchased the 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII last year, but still needed that "fast" lens in the lower end of the zoom range for use with my D7100 (which I plan to upgrade to full frame once I save some more).

  • +

    Amazing images, fast, low edge distortion at f/2.8 and none when stopping down, solid, well-built, great in low light situations, beautiful bokeh

  • -

    It is heavy, but "heavy" means there are more quality glass elements to this lens which results in overall better photographs.

As a longtime Nikon owner, I have used Nikkor wide primes and zooms to varying degrees of satisfaction. But this time, I didn't want to compromise image quality over price. Before deciding on the 24-70 I also considered the 17-35 2.8.

  • +

    Consistent Output, Crisp Images Wide-open, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Low Lens Flare, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction, Well-balanced On The D810

This is one of the Nikon "holy trinity" lenses to have. Really great as a walk about lens, although the field of view will be somewhat limited on a DX camera body due to the crop factor.

Awesome lens! I'm a professional photographer shooting a wide variety of subject matter from posed family shots to live band performances (both indoor and out.) I found that my previous lens Nikkor 28-300 (3.5-5.6) just wasn't fast enough with the concert photography unless all the stars were...

I have purchased two of these for use in the studio and for outside portraits. we shoot alot of pictures- mainly seniors - and they have performed up to expectatins.

I have been wanting lens for some time. I just couldn't justify the cost. I was about to buy a Tamron, but looked to see if Nikon had a refurbished one, Low and behold Nikon did and for the same price as a new Tamron. all i can say is I'm glad I bit the bullet and got it.

Fast aperture, high-performance. Lens optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both the Nikon FX (23.9 x 36mm) and DX format image sensors.

  • +

    Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction, Nice Bokeh

Best standard zoom on the F mount by far (for FX) - only downside is the size and the price tag.

  • +

    - Insanely sharp - f/2.8 - Weather sealed - Good bokeh - Very fast focusing

  • -

    - It's $1800 - Quite large for a standard zoom

This is one amazing lens. The prize tag is high but I find it to be worth every penny that I have to work to own it. The focus is fast and the shots are sharp even in low light and even without the long reach I can crop without much loss.
