  • Summary: It doesnt rotate very smoothly. It gets stuck when trying to zoom slowly. Otherwise the clarity is great. I just thought this would have Internal Auto Focus. but this is a fully manual Lens.

  • Excerpt: I'm using this on my D700 and at 24mm it vignettes like there's no tomorrow! It's practically unusable, starts getting better around 25mm and ok around 40mm.

  • Conclusion: didnt enjoy my time with this old lens. I think it really shows its age, the kit lens puts this to shame... the brokeh was the nicest part of this lens and the colours were very warm, nice too so its not all bad but certainly much worse than a nikkor kit lens. in comparison to say a 28-70L F2.8 i used to have on my canon this is really not too impressive, in fact i shouldnt even compare them. Do yourself a favour and buy something with af-s...
  • Pros: hmm not many, nice brokeh thats about it
  • Cons: soft at all apertures, not really well built, slow focusing, slow in general... big and clunky for a slow lens

  • Conclusion: This lens will make You happy if You stick to the postcard sized pictures. The resolution is poor for my taste and I'm seriously thinking about replacing it with the new 24-120 AFS-VR Zoom, which I'm hoping will be on par with the much higher regarded 28-105/3.5-4 zoom or the 24-85/3.5-4 AFS zoom. This lens is only good for snapshots. I don't know wether it's a production or a design problem. It is not a popular lens, despite its qualities.
  • Pros: Quite solid and well built for a consumer lens. Excellent color and contrast. Good handling on F100. Wide range of focal lenghts. Bright viewfinder image when composing. Filter end immobile. Hood included. All-in-one, universal lens aspect.
  • Cons: Lot of distortion. Low resolution wide open - medium at f/8. A bit too heavy and big. Scary looking with the hood on.

Mechanisch in Ordnung, aber viel zu weich

W. Steinhauer, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: Ich habe dieses Objektiv wieder zurückgeschickt. Ich habe eine D600 und suchte noch ein bezahlbares Standardzoom dazu, weil ich die Kamera nur als Body und nicht mit dem AF-S 24-85mm gekauft habe. Also habe ich mal diese Vorgängerversion ausprobiert. Fazit hier: Mir ist das Objektiv viel zu weich. Mit der 24er-Brennweite und bei Offenblende 2.8 waren selbst im Zentrum keine vernünftigen Ergebnisse zu erzielen.

  • Excerpt: Купилась на диафрагму 2,8 на фокусном расстоянии кажется 28 она уже становится 3,2!!!Смысл светосилы пропадает совсем!Купите лучше 3,5-4,5 будет дешевле, по свету тоже самое.Жалею о покупке.
  • Pros: Диапазон фокусных расстояний
  • Cons: Это объектив -это недостаток средств на нормальный светосильный!

Gute Verarbeitung aber nur mäßige optische Leistung

Tim Knackfuß "Elementarteilchen", Amazon
9 December 2012
  • Summary: Ich hatte das Objektiv früher an meiner F100 (analog). Schon damals war ich von der optischen Qualität nicht sehr überzeugt. Im Zentrum hat es über alle Blenden sauber und scharf abgebildet. An den Rändern jedoch zeigte sich eine deutliche Unschärfe, die auch nicht durch Abblenden zu beheben war. Die Verarbeitung ist wie gewohnt tadellos und fühlt sich wertig an. An DX-Bodies (hatte eine D70) hingegen sind die optischen Leistungen gut.
