Re: Looking for info on the 24-85vr

I'm thinking it will optically be between my 24-70 and my 24-120.   Which would make it acceptable to me.  (The 24-120 is marginally unacceptable to me).

But I think the close focus is a critical factor underwater.

Also - does the lens extend when zoomed?  It's good for the optical center to be in a precise spot within the dome, and if it moves with zooming will have a deleterious effect.
