Re: What Nikon 2.8 zoom lenses??

Yes the Nikon zooms are great. I had the 24-70 - beautiful lens. But so huge heavy and expensive. I could never bring myself to buy the 70-200 despite it being awesome. So huge and expensive and heavy. Just too over the top.

Just by the way the Fuji 18-55 I would rate as a bit better than the Nikon 24-70 because it has OIS. It is also very sharp and good to the corners wide open. Optically its very similar to the Nikon 24-70 but the OIS, the lighter weight, the way lower cost (1/3rd the price), much smaller, takes smaller filters puts it ahead. But its not a FF lens.
