I’ve owned this lens for about a year now, and it has been a wonderful performer. It’s pretty big, so best used with a heavy camera (I use a D850 with grip) to balance the rig. I love the sharpness c order to corner, and the overall handling characteristics. With VR, I’m able to routinely handhold at speeds as low as 1/20th second at 70mm, and when enlarged on the (unforgiving) D850, still maintain great sharpness and overall image contrast and colour saturation. Expensive. Heavy. Big. Worth every dollar, millimetre and gram...
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
Best go to lense and exceptional resolution from edge to edge in low light, normal light,fast way faster and better then previous model.
Super crisp and well balanced on my d750. I love this lens. I needed to up my game so I did some reseach and decided to take the jump and I am so glad I did. great lens super sharp and very nice colors.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
