Unhappy with Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
Jun 15, 2013

In 2011, I bought my new D7000 & naturally would like to pair it with a good lens. Because of the many positive reviews I had read regarding the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G, it convinced me to buy this lens for myself on the same year. This particular lens I got is very unpredictable or I must say unreliable. I don't trust this lens one bit because every time I take my photos, it is never sharp as they claim it to be. My other lens (50 mm 1.4, & my 18-200 1:3.5-5.6) is far more superior than this lens.

At first I thought maybe it's the user issues, but after using the lens & put it on auto, it's just not pretty. to me, this lens is not that superior lens that everyone is talking about. I hardly use it & rely on my older lens instead.

I called Nikon & told them my story. Unfortunately, I have to go through certain steps ( like: send me a sample photo & will send you our response back etc.) before I can send it for repair or even just to check them.

Am I the only unlucky one with this lens?

Any other suggestions?
