Best SMALL mid range zoom for D800 (AF or MF) ?
10 months ago

Hi Folks,

Anyone got any suggestions as to a very high quality (IQ wise) mid range zoom that gets close to say a 24-70/2.8 nikkor when stopped down between f8 and f16 for landscape work - a 28-70 type, but of course I'd settle for a 24-120 if it exists 

While I'd love for say the new 24-85VR to fit the bill, I have the older AFS version and that doesn't quite cut it (its ok, but its not a 24-70 replacement if one is being critical). An old AI MF type would be ok. Maybe preferable as I'm purely looking for the smallest physical package to keep the weight down when travelling, but I'd like it to be sharp all over when stopped down, and preferably over the whole of its zoom range as well.

Any suggestions?
