Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED

 

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED is the lens for Nikon event shooters, but its not a perfect performer.

Great center sharpness throughout zoom range. Constant f/2.8 aperture.

Great center sharpness throughout zoom range. Constant f/2.8 aperture. ; Edge performance suffers. Some distortion. Lacks optical stabilization. Pricey.

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED is a workhorse for many a photographer, but it's not without issues. Edges are weak at its widest angle, and there's some distortion there as well. Optical performance gets better as you zoom, with the best...

Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G IF-ED AF-S Nikkor Review

 

There's not much to say here that the rest of this review hasn't already indicated. Performance on a subframe sensor is exquisite, given that the lens isn't really put to the test.

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 24-70 mm f/2.8G ED

 

In August 2007 we saw one of the biggest offensives mounted by Nikon so far – two new reflex cameras, D300 and D3, based on new CMOS sensors were launched at the same time and also the whole armada of professional lenses. Among them there were two...

great quality of casing ; outstanding image quality in the frame centre at all combinations of focal lengths and apertures ; good image quality on the edge of the frame from f/4.0 upwards ; chromatic aberration quite well corrected ; moderate...

image quality on the edge of the frame at the maximum aperture should have been better ; transmission worse than that of competitors ; huge coma in the full frame corners ; average work against bright light for this class of equipment

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 24-120 mm f/4G ED VR

 

Every digital full frame system, available on the market, features an all-purpose lens with the focal length starting from 24 mm and ending somewhere over 100 mm. In the Canon system it is the EF 24–105 mm f/4L IS USM model; when it comes to Sony we...

efficient image stabilization ; very good image quality in the frame centre for the whole range of focal lengths ; not bothersome distortion on the DX sensor ; low astigmatism ; negligible vignetting on the DX sensor and acceptable vignetting on full...

very high chromatic aberration near the maximum relative aperture ; low quality of image on the edge of full frame near the maximum relative aperture ; significant distortion on full frame ; noticeable coma
