Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G AF-S Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.
Conclusion: Although not very exotic, the standard zoom covers a range most photographers couldn't do without. The Nikon 24-70mm performs as you would expect from a lens of this calibre and price. Build quality is excellent, the focusing is fast and most importantly the images are sharp and contrasty in a range of conditions and will find its way into many photographer's kit bags as a result, despite the £1200 plus price tag.
Pros: Excellent central resolution throughout the focal length range, Great contrast, Superb resistance to flare and ghosting
Cons: Corner quality could be better, Rough zoom mechanism on this sample, Size – it is a long lens
Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED (FX) - Review / Test Report
22 July 2012
Conclusion: The Nikkor AF-S 24-70 is an impressive standard zooms lens that delivers very sharp and contrasty images. With its fast aperture it allows for low light shooting or alternatively object separation with limited depth of field, where it delivers an unusually smooth bokeh for a zoom lens in this focal range. It is built as solid as you'd expect a pro grade lens to be and its sonic wave driven AF is very fast and silent.
Conclusion: It will be one of shorter summaries. Nikon undoubtedly offered a splendid instrument to the professionals. If you want to be nasty, though, you might add that the Zeiss gave a better one to the Sony system and Sigma didn’t lag behind with its new 24–70 mm f/2.8 model either – it can put the Nikkor to shame especially with the quality of its anti-reflection coatings.
Cons: 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.

Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED - Review / Test Report
14 February 2008
Conclusion: The Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED exceeds the already very good performance of its predecessor. The center quality is nothing short of outstanding matching or beating the resolution of a 10mp APS-C sensor. The border quality is very good at large aperture increasing to excellent levels at f/5.6-8. However, you've to be careful with the curved focus field at 24mm which can result in out-of-focus corners!
Excerpt: Объективы с диапазоном фокусных расстояний от 24 до 70 мм и постоянной светосилой F/2.8 возглавляют линейки оптики всех производителей, и это не случайное совпадение. Дело в том, что именно в диапазон фокусных расстояний 24-70 мм снимается абсолютное большинство сюжетов — от пейзажей и архитектурной съемки до портретов и репортажей.
Pros: надежная конструкция;, универсальный диапазон фокусных расстояний;, резкость и бликозащищенность;, красивая проработка переднего и заднего плана;, пыле-брызго защита.
Cons: неидеальная балансировка с небольшими камерами в широкоугольном положении;, большой вес;, отсутствие стабилизатора.
Обзор Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G IF ED. Светлый и дорогой универсальный полнокадровый объектив

Summary: Перед нами проприетарный объектив от Nikon высшего ценового диапазона. И в нем все хорошо: он добротно собран, имеет защиту от неблагоприятных погодных факторов. И пусть оценки хорошие, но столь заметное и существенное падения разрешения по периферии кадра при столь высокой цене немного странно.
