Yes you did. Still, it shows the potential of the lens. I really think I am going to buy this lens. Thus far I have use manual focus nikkor lenses on my D700 and i have added the 20 and 40mm Cosina lenses recently. But I have been looking/waiting for a portable, light, well performing AF lens. This lens may be it.



Hi Bas,

I have your same feeling about this lens. I have MF Zeiss ZF lenses on my D700 and I was never convinced about the 24-120/4 VR as walk around AF FX lens. This new 24-85 VR lens could be a portable, lightweight & well performing AF lens. However, I don't need it immediately, so I can wait for more reviews before taking any decision.



Hi Ricardo,

I will also wait for the reviews to come out, and probably more important, some "field" tests from the people here in this forum. But I have a feeling that this is going be a very good performer in a portable package.
