Summary: This is a great all purpose lens. It allows you to take Portrait, Landscape, and Macro shots with a single lens - not many pieces of glass can make this claim. The only reason I'm giving it a 'Good' rating instead of 'Excellent' is because the Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 is noticeably sharper, but costs 3x the price. If you're looking for value, this is your lens.
Summary: I love this lens. As crazy as it sounds I didn't think a 20 year old lens would give me such fantastic shots. I picked this up on ebay for under $80.00 and it was worth it. I use it as my everyday lens. It is a lens that I didn't spend a grand on so I allow my kids to use it when they want to photograph things too. There are some cons but every lens has a con right?
Summary: I bought this lens to cover the general walk-around photographing - so it is on my camera all the time. The lens is 1. Sharp through out the zoom range 2. A great day-light lens with better than average speed 3. To obtain a natural feeling of the photos, I also put a Nikon NC filter and it turns out great results. 4.
Summary: I've had this lens for more than a year now and taken a few thousand pictures with it. It blows my old Tamron zoom completely away. 24-85mm is a huge range. It's just so darn convenient to zoom instead of changing lenses. The color is excellent with only a little aberration noticeable with extreme contrasts. It's certainly bigger and heavier than a point-and-shoot camera, but it delivers the same kind of instant flexibility.
Summary: average lens... but not bad. Plastic body. I preferred old full metal made NIKKORs :) Good focus range. Low weith. Im was purchase this len not for me... but I was made several shots at this lens.
Summary: This lens has a broad range of use and if fairly fast the macro funtion is a little cumbersome to use but works well. I would say it is not tack sharp at wide open apeture and the amount of distortion is perceptable however for an all around lens it does very well.
Summary: This lens didn't disappoint, living up to its reputation. The seller supplied the item as described and took a lot of care to carefully pack the lens and post it within a very short time. To be recommended.
Excerpt: Käytetty FX rungossa. Pieni ja kevyt zoomi, joka piirtää hintaisekseen hyvin. Täydellä aukolla tuntuu esim. hakkaamaan kiinteän 24mm/2.8 AF nikkorin (joka on kyllä melko vanha linssi). Tarkennus nopea ja hiljainen. Rakenne voisi olla jämäkämpi, mutta tällä hinnalla ihan hyvin tehty linssi. Tuntuu muuten olevan ulkoisesti lähes lähes identtinen 18-70mm DX linssin kanssa. Kätevä kun tarvitsee kevyttä peruszoomia eikä valovoima ole kriittistä.
Pros: - kevyt ja suht pieni, - piirto ok, - halpa, - 24mm laajakulma
