    EXCELLENT quality

    Posted by Justin on January 17, 2020

    My first foray into “ pro zooms” and I am blown away, corner sharpness, resolution and contrast are fantastic. The build quality is just as impressive to me. Built like a tank

    Outstanding lens

    Posted by Photograbber on May 18, 2018

    The 24-70mm f2.8E ED VR has consistently amazed me at how well it performs in a variety of less than ideal situations and will always be a part of my kit. Paired with a D5, it is sharp, gives smooth bokeh and is quick to focus. It works equally well on my faithful well seasoned D300.

    I have the lens mounted on the camera anytime it is in the bag for those quick grab shots that present themselves unexpectedly, and it has yielded some really nice images of those fleeting precious moments.

    It´s well known that excellant glass isn´t cheap. While this lens is not an inexpensive piece of gear and may not be in the realm of a typical amateur photographer (maybe even some pros, perhaps), it has and continues to deliver remarkable performance. This has made my investment very much worth it.

    Worth every penny

    Posted by CaymanJim on May 7, 2018

    I hesitated to upgrade after reading all the mixed reviews. Finally got a call from my dealer in Charlotte that a new stock of 24-70mm f/2.5E Ed VR had arrived, I reluctantly traded in my old G version for this one. WOW what a difference. This is an amazing lens! Paired with a D850 raises photography to another level. Anyone who is waiting to upgrade, don´t. The clarity and detail this thing produces even at low shutter speeds is awesome (easily hand holdable to 1/15 sec. at 70mm). My next upgrade will be the 70-200mm f/2.8E.

    My newest GO TO lens!

    Posted by OrangeKrate on September 9, 2017

    I recently bought the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR. It exceeded my expectations. I knew from the reviews and photos I had seen posted that it was a performer. I was concerned it may be a plastic feeling lightweight lens. NOT. It is a powerhouse full of glass goodness. Yes it is a larger lens but it can also replace several of the lenses in my bag. I will be using this as my ´´go to´´ lens if there is any question on what to grab first. Great speed, focus and bokeh.

    Excellent VR and optic sharpness.

    Posted by Vivendran on October 24, 2016

    I saw lot of review that this lens less sharper than previous non vr lens. Well, it might be true. Most of them test it using tripod and mirror up to get maximum sharpness. In real life, we won´t continuously use tripod and mirror up. I am always traveling guy, and also part time wedding photographer. I lost lot of important picture due to shaking. Last month I sold my previous non vr 24-70mm nikon and bought this new lens. It is awesome. Even 1st day I bought the lens, I nearly fall down when I tried to test how good is the vr, by continuous moving my body to see the effect in viewfinder (it is really stable until I forgot I am leaning my body). Sharpeness is better with vr on. I could snap picture without blur at 1/10second. Definitely must have lens for traveler and wedding photographer.

    Great lens!!

    Posted by Tiger on June 29, 2016

    I have 70-200/f2.8 and 24-120/f4. Sold the 24-120/f4 and got this. WOW. I got this lens from this site after it was out of stock and then re-stocked. Not sure if things improved, but the lens is SUPER SHARP throughout. I read all the reviews on this lens...all were done on early production. I have no idea what they are talking about unless Nikon tighten up their production or did behind-the-scene improvement.

    Beautiful accurate colors. Sharp. Super fast focus with D750.

    Biggest negative...this is a big lens and relatively heavy. It is my primary lens.

    Wedding Photographer´s Dream

    Posted by KrisVlad on May 23, 2016

    I am absolutely stunned by the performance of this lens. The focus is ultra fast, and image quality is amazing, and the booked at 70mm is phenomenal. If you use your gear for portraiture or wedding photography, this is THE lens for you. At 24mm it is perfectly wide for full body shots, and at 70mm it is perfectly tight for beautiful portraits. It IS expensive, but it allows you to ditch the 2 or 3 prime lenses you would have to constantly take on and off to get the same image quality at a lesser cost. I´d rather consolidate and use top notch lens instead.
