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 do have both. For my business travel, the 24-120 is very versatile and gives a good tele range too. The 24-70 I use in studio and for shootings where I going to play with f2.8.

I got 75% the 24-120 in use and 25% the 24-70.

The AF is more silent on the 24-70 which makes it a bit better for video. The IS is comparable.


Does your copy of 24-120 f4 underexposes by 1/2 to 2/3 stop? Mine does, is this normal?
