Back to Nikon SRL with new-old 24-120 F4 VR

So at last I found a (used, but EXC+) 24-120 F4 VR.

And my 6 years old and seldom used D700 is getting a new life!

Today it was the first sunny day after I bought the lens, and I took it to shoot a few snaps strolling in downtown.

The Naked Archer:

The Archer - Crema, Piazza Trento e Trieste - Bronze statue (1925 c.a) celebrating the citizens' fights for freedom

A 1:1 crop of our XIV Century Cathedral front face:

Crema Cathedral Church (1310 c.a)

Both are .nef RAW files developed in LR5 with just std. lens correction and some mild tone curve applied.

I'm not here for a review of the lens (someone can say every lens if good stopped down to F8 - but I tested it wide open, too). I just feel extremely satisfied with it!

And the D700 still feels like a professional tool. Responsive. Dependable. Heavy weight (after using a Sony RX100 during the last two years). Loud mirror CLAP (the only really annoying side).

Comments welcome.
