so far so good. finally we are getting the 36mp version of the D700. what the original D800/E should have been at day 1. the quiet and damped shutter alone nails it.
Given the current length and weight, might as well just make it f/2.8 and throw in a few more piece of glass to correct the distortion on the wide end...
performs at 80-85% of the 2.8 version, and gives you the extra 70-120mm zoom range. fair enough.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II
Close to perfection. Would love a 24-85/2.8 VR for the next update.
Very decent lens for the money. Super duper sharp in the center and decent enough on the edges. Slowly replacing my 24-70/2.8....
The focal length breathing at MFD (200mm marking is actually 135mm only) always led me to the "what on earth were they thinking???" question.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/4G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G
Nikon was 6 years behind canon on this lens. And now folks are hoping for Nikon's version of the 70-300L.
As good as it gets. Performs well on the D800/E sensor even wide open on the long end. The clarity at 400mm is just super.
the price/performance ratio of this beast put all other Nikon lenses to shame...

PatrickP's wish list

Sorted by most recently added.

Other gear:
  • Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/2.8G VR Patent already filed by Nikon. The expected true successor to the 17-35/2.8.
  • Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G VR I don't mind the 24-70 going heavier and bigger for having VR
