I went to Nikkor 24-120 f/4


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.


Although I am a D300s shooter, I had similar dilemma and I decided for Nikkor. Very glad by the IQ and flexibility of the lens. The VR is great, also.

D810 has approximately the same pixel density than D300s, so I would expect the same IQ.

All the best,
