Got this lens bundled along with my 750, and its an overall good lens. Nice and sharp almost always. VR helps a lot. My only issue is its distortion at the corners when it is wide at 24mm. I know this can be corrected in Photoshop rather quickly, but one wouldn´t expect this to happen at this price tag.
Great lens. Beautifull colors, Excellent sharpness. Very fast focussing in low light.
J ai posseder la 28-300 pendant 2 ans, mais lors de l achat de la D810 j ai decider de faire le compromis de migrer vers la 24-120
et ce dernier repond beaucoup mieux en terme de qualité de rendu avec ce nouveau boîtier.
Il y a bien de la distortion et du vignettage mais il est simple de faire la correction logicielle en ´´bach´´ et j accepte ce compromis
pour obtenir son excellent piqué, contraste et rendu des couleurs malgré le range relativement étendu de cet objectif!
J ai aussi la 24-70 et la 24-120 m offre la même qualité de piqué pour un poid réduit et une plus grande versatilité!
La construction est excellente avec une bonne fluidité de la bague zoom et aucun jeu dans le fût des lentilles.
La mise au point est précise et rapide.
C est objectif n est pas consu pour remplacer des focales fixes spécialisé mais pour les vacances ou les voyages
où ont aime ne pas être contraint aux changement d objectif et ainsi partir avec un fourre tout plus léger,
cet objectif est impeccable autant en ergonomie qu en excellence des résultats photos!
I bought the refurbished AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR lens direct from Nikon. It arrived double-boxed and securely packaged. I mounted it on my D810 and went out to shoot scenes around my neighborhood. My immediate impressions were that the 24-120 focused accurately and quickly. Images were tack-sharp hand-held, yet only when I went into my home studio to do post-processing did I notice that I had not switched the lens to VR on. So tonight I tried the lens with VR on and I am completely satisfied...VR is astonishing, even at the wide 24mm setting! So just buy this lens, especially if you can order the refurbished model directly from Nikon USA.
I read couple reviews on this over internet when decide to look for a nice lens for my daily photo shooting needs, I decide to give it a try. The picture is very good to me though my skill has more room to be improved. I will recommend this lens to everyone.
I had debated whether this lens would be an adequate alternative to a 24-70mm f/2.8 as a ´´walk around´´ lens for travel. It´s a great value. I love the extra range, and when combined with the incredible light sensitivity of the D750, would I miss the extra speed?
My conclusion: The compromise is real. Not from the speed as much as from the inferior bokeh.
Don´t get me wrong. This lens is so versatile, I almost never take it off my D750. The range is irresistible and I can shoot in near total darkness at f/4 with remarkable results.
But when I am shooting against a bright or busy background and want to soften it by shooting at f/4, the bokeh produced by this lens can be cringe-worthy.
Conclusion: A great value. Just know what you´re buying. Recommended with reservations.
Attached are a couple of photos where the bokeh made me cringe, and a couple where I thought it was perfectly acceptable. If you can´t tell which is which, then you´ll absolutely love this lens.
I can´t find anything bad to say about this lens.
The constant aperture is a must have and the VR is terrific.
If you buy this lens you will not be disappointed.
Note to Nikon: 28 to 150mm would be a better range.
For some reason the focus quality was less than I expected for the price. I did some side-by-comparison with my DX 18-200 and for me in that situation the 18-200 was sharper. There seemed to be more distortion at 24mm than there was with the 18-200 at 18mm. The lens was solid operated smoothly. It just wasn´t the lens for me.
My lens came as a kit with my D750. After a couple of weeks I took the kit back and purchased the D750 body only. The lens came with a lot of distortion. I would photograph what appeared to be straight lines come out in the picture bent severely on both ends. If you use lightroom it is an easy fix, but this means you would have to post process every picture you take with it. Taking photos should be fun and you shouldn´t have to spend hours performing post processing. The kit made the lens about $700 a reasonable price for the quality, but at $1300 I think it might be a little high given what you get. For those who might have thought that my lens was defective, i did exchange the kit and same results.
