Re: Nikon 24-120 F4 or Tamron 24-70 vc 2.8


I am a wedding photographer and i'm about to purchase the Nikon D810 this week.

I have the 50 1.8 and 85 1.8 (both g) and i want to buy another FX lens.

I have an hard time to decide what lens to buy and as now i consider 2 lenses:

1. Nikon 24-120 F4

2. Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC

at the begining i was thinking about the tamron but i saw that this lens isn't sharp at 2.8 (wide open)  but it still has 2.8 aperture so i need your help please.


I'd say that you need something longer than 120mm. Look at a Nikon 70-200 f4 VR FX lens. I'm wanting one real bad and will use it hopefully for my next wedding shoot.
