  • 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: The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED is the lens for Nikon event shooters, but its not a perfect performer.
  • Pros: Great center sharpness throughout zoom range. Constant f/2.8 aperture.
  • Cons: Edge performance suffers. Some distortion. Lacks optical stabilization. Pricey.

REVIEW: Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED NIKKOR

photodo
13 September 2009
  • 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

Lens Test: Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED AF-S

Pop Photo
8 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Surprisingly, this $1,700 (street) lens is Nikon's first constant-aperture optic in the very popular, all-purpose, standard zoom category. Both of the company's previous pro and amateur 24-85mm lenses had variable apertures. If the gold ornamentation on its barrel doesn't tip you off, the price should confirm that this is a professional-caliber lens.

AF-S 24-70 mm f/2.8G ED

  • 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

photozone.de
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!

Nikon - AF-S Nikkor 24-70 mm/F 2,8 G ED

Pixelmania
15 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Het AF-S Nikkor 24-70 mm/F 2,8 G ED zoomobjectief heeft een straatprijs van circa 1599,- en is een van de beste zoomobjectieven die we in onze handen hebben gehad. Vooral op het gebied van scherpte presteert dit objectief uitstekend. Mogelijke lichtafval en vertekening zijn achteraf eenvoudig te corrigeren. Voor bezitters van een full-frame Nikon reflex is dit zoomobjectief dan ook een 'must-have' zoomobjectief.

  • Summary: To będzie jedno z krótszych podsumowań. Nikon, niewątpliwie, dał zawodowcom świetny instrument. Chcąc być złośliwym, można jednak napisać, że Zeiss dał systemowi Sony lepszy, a swoje dorzuciła Sigma, której nowy model 24–70 mm f/2.8 potrafi Nikkora zawstydzić, choćby jakością zastosowanych powłok antyodbiciowych.
  • Pros: świetnej jakości obudowa,, wybitna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru dla wszystkich kombinacji ogniskowych i przysłon,, dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru od f/4.0 w górę,, dość dobrze korygowana aberracja chromatyczna,, umiarkowana dystorsja,, mały astygmatyzm,, praktyczny brak winietowania na matrycy DX,, błyskawiczny, cichy i celny autofokus.
  • Cons: jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru przy maksymalnym otworze powinna być lepsza,, transmisja gorsza od konkurentów,, duża koma w rogach pełnej klatki,, średnia praca pod ostre światło jak na tę klasę sprzętu.
