Summary: Nikon Zoom-Nikkor G ED-IF 24-85mm F/3.5-4.5 Lens, very nice! I'm sure, this lens is the best lens I own. It focuses fast and it is very sharp. SWM provides super-fast, super-quiet AF operation. M/A mode for quick switching between autofocus and manual focus operation. ED glass element and hybrid-type aspherical lens element for higher optical performance. IF (Internal Focusing) technology for smoother focusing and a better balanced handling.
Summary: For a lens that isn't made anymore this does a supurb job. Pictures are very clear and sharp. I got information about this lens from Ken Rockwell's web site, so I thought I would try it out myself. Am very happy with the results. Works very well on both my 5100 and 700.
Summary: This is a great lens... period! It is light and sharp and works like a charm on my D800. And did I mention that it is light? Obviously it is not a 24-70 f2.8, but its results are close. And who would want to take an expensive lens hiking or to the beach? This is a great alternative to big glass. WARNING: Do not confuse this model with the "D" which costs more and is not nearly as good, or the new VR model that is as good and costs three times more.
Summary: I recommend this lens to anyone looking to up grade, it offers sharp pictures and the price is good.make sure not to confuse it with the f2.8 that is less sharp and cost more,this is the f3.5 lens.
Summary: Another excellent prime lens from Nikon. I have rarely had anything but a good experience with Nikkor prime lenses, and this one does not disappoint. Great construction, good weight to it, but compact in size, and of course fantastic build quality. It focuses very, very fast on my Nikon D90. And from what I can tell, it has great sharpness, good depth of field for a 24mm lens, and produces excellent photos. You can't go wrong with this one.
Summary: I am enjoying my lens. It is a refurb so the savings are great. I have used this vender for several purchases and have never been disappointed. This is a great mid-range lens that will allow me to lighten my load to only two lens.
