Walk around lens

LuisValizas, B&H Photo
13 June 2014
  • Excerpt: A walk around lens, on the F4 series is biot as sharp as the 16-35 or the 70-200 which is superb. I believe that Nikon must upgrade the optics to include in a "new" hole trinity on F4 lenses. Forf less money go for the 28-300, at least you gain more range and similar quality.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

If you're considering this lens, here's the good and the bad...

Fields, Amazon
5 April 2014
  • Summary: First off I've been using an Olympus 12-60mm (24-120mm) lens for years and moved to the Nikon Df because Olympus stopped making true SLR's. This lens is the closest I could get to the Olympus but in a full frame SLR. The first thing I noticed is that at a maximum aperture of F4 it's not as bright through the viewfinder. I'd been using a 2.8-4 in the past. Sharpness is decent but not what I'd hoped for. Acceptable, yes.

Not stellar results-so far

Big Mac, Adorama
25 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens after reading reviews that claimed this was a must-have, every day great lens. Well, truth be told I have used this lens only a few times but I have not been impressed-so far. Images seem a bit soft and washed out. It may have been the subject I was photographing, but I certainly was not pleased with the results. I hope that perhaps it was only the subject, and my future pictures with this lens will be improved.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction

Quality control?

Mags, B&H Photo
2 January 2013
  • Excerpt: My go-to lens for travel. Not especially light, but reasonable range and good picture quality. Mine suddenly developed a piece of debris (tissue remnant?) inside the sealed lens almost precisely a week after going off warranty. I suppose it took a year of intermittent use for it to come loose.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Production Quality

Fat and Overpriced

  • Summary: This is not a bad lens, nor is it a stand-out optical achievment. Nikon designed it to fill a hole in their system vs. Canon and it does that..
  • Pros: VG build, VR modes, some weather sealing, good focal range
  • Cons: Hilariously expensive for slow glass, big and heavy, not the sharpest at the longer end

Nice Walk Around Lens for FX

Ray G, Crutchfield
29 October 2012
  • Summary: Having owned and loved the 16-85 VR on my D7000, this seemed like a no brainer purchase for my D800 but unfortunately, while the focal length was the same, that's about where the similarities end. The 24-120 Focal Length is fantastic as a single lens to take on vacation, family gatherings, and general photography. The VR is very effective, especially if you are taking video with your DSLR.
  • Pros: Very useful range, Constant Aperture, Compact, VR
  • Cons: Image quality is not as good as the price will you make you believe

Nice lens, a bit soft

Linwood, B&H Photo
19 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to flesh out my FX collection in preparation for a D800 (now using a D300). I also have the 85/1.4 and 70-200/2.8, 200-400/4, this was to become a "walking around" lens for the D800. I use the 18-200 as such on the D300. The lens was well constructed, good size, handled well, focused fast and accurately, and the VR was quite effective. However, in doing tests it was a bit soft.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Soft wide open

Product is reasonably sharp but lacks features

Zephyrpn, Adorama
8 December 2011
  • Excerpt: I owned a good lens - 18-55 IR lens. Unfortunately, I needed extended range - at least to 85mm. The best alternative is this lens and I wish Nikon made this lens at F2 or F28 with IR. this barrel moves easily and you have to so careful to duplicate a shot. It's slower than I would like. I do like the ability to extend to 120mm. I seems sharp across the entire range.
