I really wanted to like this lens….

Suntouched, Adorama
15 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I wanted a mid zoom lens that was reasonably light, compact with good color and contrast and most of all SHARP to use on my Nikon D 610 (full frame). I found this lens to be SOFT in most lighting conditions, especially in bright, contrasty light.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable
  • Cons: Heavy, Inconsistent Bokeh, Inconsistent output, Poor in Low Light, Soft focus, Soft Focus Inconsistent

color not good

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cons: BAD vignetting, Poor in Low Light, Soft on sharpness

mixed emotions

  • 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...

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?
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Sharp
  • Cons: Very distorted at long, Very distorted at wide
