I enjoy this Lens and they help you take great photos. Good combination for the D800 camera.
I actually borrowed this lens from my friend that was having a baby. She delivered via C-Section. Because of infection control, I wasn´t allowed to bring my camera bag into the Operating room. This lens was so perfect! My friend couldn´t believe how sharp her images were! I have this on my list for the next big purchase.
Would like to comment on some of the 2 stars reviews. reg the sharpness. In my opinion, it is a pretty sharp lens considering it is NOT a prime lense. There is plenty of glass inside. I like the flexibility and the range of the length. The sharpness does not seem to be a huge problem, the problem is the Bokeh. I am used to prime lenses such as 50 f1.8 and 85 f1.4, and there is no comparesment. One has to come pretty close to the subject or use the higher end (70mm) of the zoom to get a nice blurry background with this one. 24mm is a wide angle and that is given. Having said that, I like the fact, that i can take group or couple´s pics and/or include some negative space without a problem. I think, great for the holidays. Not sure yet, how this performs in a low light. Love ?? my Nikon primes, they never disappoint me.
- It is suitable for general usage (landscape and portrait) photography.
- It has fixed aperture that produces great bokeh
- It has good focal length range for regular usage
- Big size
- Heavy weight
I have owned this lens for several years. It´s my go to lens that I have used for portraits, weddings, landscape and general photography. In combination with the D3x I currently use, it gives me excellent quality images that can enlarged and cropped as needed.
I bought this lens as refurbished condition straight thru the Nikon USA website. As soon as I received my lens, I inspected exterior cosmetic condition of the lens (mint condition) and also tested performance. I found several problems soon after I tested, back focusing issue and clicking noise when chasing subject with AF-C focus mode with my D610. Focus ring also felt loose. Definitely not what I expected from Nikon. Now I´m sending my lens to get service and this is very frustrating situation which I never wanted get into. But I still believe that this lens is fantastic if everything is in good shape.
amazing images... super sharp, fast focus and use in all kind of photography.. if you use DX format..never mind...to much money for crop sensor. FX user. best midrange zoom ever.
needless to say, The only downside is the weight.. If you can only get one lens to go with your new baby get this lens and treasure it as it won´t let you down. I´m very happy and satisfied I finally bought it. The sharpness and speed focussing is amazing!... the second most used lens. was an essential part of every trip. Besides being my top travel and landscape photography lens, the Nikon 24-70mm has also served me well during various local photo sessions both in studio and outdoors environments. So, as you can see, it has seen a lot of abuse from me and knowing it inside out, I can speak of it with confidence. i have the 14-24 too but love this lens because you can attach filters, and the 14-24 don´t.
Fast autofocus. Great contrast and color. Minimal flare. No drama, just beautiful pictures.
The Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom lens is not only extremely sharp, it is equally versatile. It is my go-to lens for weddings and other social events. It also does very well as a food photography lens, as evidenced below by an image taken at a shutter speed of one second (on a tripod), an aperture of f/11, a focal length of 45mm, an ISO of 640, Matrix Metering, and Auto White Balance.
