color not good

James LU, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I do find this lens a bit disappointing. Besides the common compliant of distortion, I find the color of the photos pretty dry.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Lens Creep, Weak Casing

Amateur at best

ISDNY, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: With the D800, the chromatic aberration is completely out of control. Focus is breathing quite a bit, and is very slow. The only good things about this lens is the VR and the range. Ok for video, but almost worthless for photography.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Lens Creep, Slow Focus

A little disapointed

Chuck, B&H Photo
12 March 2011
  • Excerpt: The focal length was the main draw for this lens, and it would have found a home in my bag...But, the focus ring is on the inside of the lens ( instead of the outside like most all other zooms ). So here's the problem and reason for me returning the lens. Your/my hand rests on the focus ring when holding/shooting...so it's just about a sure thing the focus could be changed during a shoot.
  • Pros: Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

I don't get it

P3 Photo, B&H Photo
22 December 2010
  • Excerpt: I do not understand the reviews here. This lens has horrible "barreling and distortion" and unbelievably bad vignetting on FX sensors particularly stopped down at 24mm. It might cover a long focal length but those saying they are "Pro's" here....have you not seen this poor performance. It's a nice versatile lens for snapshooters, but it's way too soft and distorting to cost over a grand. This one is no keeper.
  • Cons: BAD vignetting, Poor in Low Light, Soft on sharpness

mixed emotions

Tom, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: this was intended to be my standard lens on my D700 replacing an aging worn out 35-70 f/2.8 AF. However I have waffled on returning it due to barrel and pincushion distortions. I like constant aperture lenses and since a lot of my work is portraiture at f/5.6 range this seemed an excellent candidate especially with the VR. I will test it on my D300 as an alternative but the 18-200 VR I use on that is superior in distortions ....

Nikon got the 24-120 wrong again!

ROVO, B&H Photo
2 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Unfortunately Nikon have had another opportunity to make the best general purpose lens, with a better wide-angle and a faster aperture than the 2 previous attempts and the same-time released 28-300mm, but in my opinion they have failed to impress. Why do I say this? It's a very sharp lens, even right into the corners, better than the 2 previous versions, but: 1. It has too much distortion. 2. It is much too expensive compared to the 28-300mm 3.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Sharp
  • Cons: Very distorted at long, Very distorted at wide

Sein Geld nicht wert.

karl Hoffmann, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: Sorry, das Objektiv ist sein Geld nicht wert!! Als Berufsfotograf habe ich es mir als eine Universaloptik gekauft und musste immer wieder die Unschärfe in der Peripherie des Zentrums feststellen. Das ist sehr lästig und für mich untragbar. Ein von mir sehr geschätzter Service Fachmann riet mir das Objektiv zu Nikon zu schicken, weil er ein Dejustage vermutete.

Goldener Ring, ohne Glanz

Juergen Jungus, Amazon
25 April 2013
  • Summary: So kann man in Kurzform die Enttäuschung über dieses Objektiv ausdrücken. Bei zwei bestellten Objektiven (Erst- und Ersatzlieferung) hat der Fokusring ein Spiel von ungefähr 1,5mm. Hinzu kommt eine merkwürdige Geräuschkulisse beim Drehen. Eine effektive manuelle Einstellung ist so nicht möglich. Wie in einer früheren Rezension schon einmal beanstandet, muss der Fehler bei Nikon bekannt sein.
