Last year, I dropped my 24-70/2.8G lens from my camera bag to ground. I found the focus ring got stiff, and the picture of left side was unfocus. I shipped the lens to Nikon USA Service Center. It cost 600 dollars and fixed on this late spring. Since I use Zeiss manual lens, I did not use this one often. Until month ago, I brought this lens outside. The environment was about 20F, I found the lens didn't focus and the lens motor made noise. However, the lens works normal at room temperature. ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
Seriously, the whole right field of this lens is out to lunch. Wicked CA's all over (10-15pixels at extremes)... that are easily visible on the Df, debilitatingly so on the d810.. Poor sharpness (or good blurriness if you prefer) even stopped down. This lens never gets used. I need to send it in, but haven't had the motivation. Just plain bummed on it. Positives: Build quality, tactile feedback, smooth zoom but pretty creepy, well balanced. Did I just say in the short list of positives ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
For a zoom it isn't too bad but when you consider a 50 1.8G costs 1/10th that of the 24-70 and has better optics, you have to wonder if it's worth it. I will say in it's defence however that it is extremely useful. Problems: Heavy, Costly, Optics could be better.View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
This Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED lens is my standard goto lens. I store it on my main camera as it is the lens I use 70% of the time. Sure, you will almost always get better clarity and performance if you use a prime and I will pop on a prime when it is necessary or when I require that utmost perfection in a photo, but the difference in most situations is so negligible, that if I had to own just one lens and was being forced to give up all my glass but one, this would be the one I ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
Well it won't be a long review. I got this baby 2 weeks ago and believe me it was worth the wait/money it was worth everything !! And one of the cool things about this lens is, that when on 70mm it focuses very close I think it is 40cm that's very handy !! The one thing that could make this lens even better is VR but even without she's amazing !View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
