Excerpt: I generally refuse to use zoom lenses as I am pathologically obsessive about sharpness. I have tested this lens against Nikon's fixed focal length 50mm standard lens and my famous rangefinder 50mm. It is not quite as sharp as the rangefinder lens, but compares favorably to the Nikon 50mm.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I was a little hesitant as to wait for the new VR. I can say with confident I'm glad I didn't waited and went with the ED. Images are just amazing. I just shoot a wedding with this lens as my primary and a 50mm 1.4. I can say that this lens outperformed my expectations. A must have in your kit. A+
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I wanted this lens for a long time, took me a while to raise the money for it. When I did, I found it consistently foced well behind the subject, repeatedly and ender all conditions. I retured it to Nikon a total of 4 times. They insisted there was nothing wrong with it.
Excerpt: I figured after 6 months of owning this lens with my D810 that I would downgrade it, but that it just not the case. Yes some copies are just a matter of a Nikon lens tech having a good day, and I got lucky.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Buyer beware! Nikon's quality control with this lens is just awful.

Excerpt: Bought this lens for multiple reasons especially for a week in Yosemite. It spent most of the time on a D4S. I use it for many different shots including time lapse. Downloading every night I saw what I thought were good images.
Excerpt: 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...
