Nikon Mid Range Zoom for Landscapes on a D800
Jun 30, 2013

Its an often asked question I know but I'd welcome any advice here, i'm looking for a mid range zoom for mostly landscape use on my D800. The main considerations would be price, size and performance stopped down to F/8 or more, I'v not really got a definite budget or size in mind but the Nikon 24-70mm is likely beyond both, the Tamron 24-70mm and Nikon 24-120mm f/4 might just be in it but again that might be pushing it a little since its more of a "holiday lens".

That really leaves be looking at the three Nikon 24-85mm's but looking at reviews I'v having some doubts about performance, the latest VR version seemed the most obvious choice but most reviews seem to point towards weaker boarders at the wide end. The older f/2.8-4 actually shows better performance stopped down according to DxO but generally its rep doesn't seem to be too great.

This question has not been answered yet.
