Excerpt: I needed an all around lens for my Nikon D750, and got a great deal on it when I purchased my D750. I had read mixed reviews about the lens, and took the risk. It was worth the risk. The lens isn't 100% tack sharp. I will admit that.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have Nikon 14-24mm f2.8, 24-70mm f2.8, 70-200mm f2.8, etc. But for traveling, 24-120mm f4 is my choice. It is not as sharp as those above, but it is very acceptable. Please look at the samples of pictures that I took with this lens.
Summary: Pros - Pro level color and contrast - Center sharpness is very good Cons - Sharpness starts to gradually fade on the edges - Distortion is fairly strong, but can be corrected in post processing - Color fringing I only purchased this because I found a new copy in "white box" form for $689.
Summary: A bit hesitant in buying this lens. I already have the 14-24, 24-70 and 70-200. My biggest thing was lugging that 70-200 around and only using it for maybe a few shots while traveling. For my uses I don't care that this lens isn't f/2.8. This lenses is so much lighter and compact then the 70-200.
Excerpt: It offers great convenience with excellent sharpness and really amazing VR capability. However, it's not sealed as tightly as 24-70 due to its extending barrel design. As a result, over time, dust, moisture, sand can get inside the lens and Buyers need to be aware.
Excerpt: I've traveled the world with this lens from the tropics to mountainsides in Bhutan. Although I travel with several primes and the wonderful new Nikon 70-200, this lens is still my go-to. I've dropped it countless times.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Summary: 4.5 Stars quality, 5 Stars for versatility. The latest generation AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G ED VR is a stellar professional level lens. It is pretty darn sharp, it's built pretty well, is weather sealed and is tremendously versatile. And it also provides good value.
Excerpt: This fx lens on a D300 and is the lens I use99% of the time ( the other lens is a 80-400).with the dx 1.5 x the 24-120 becomes a 36 - 180; (and the other a 120 - 600),The colours on this lens are pleasing and it is not too bulky to carry around..
Excerpt: Great lens optically . Pretty sharp through the focal range. No flare or ghosting. Also very good at F/4.This is a great all around lens on my Nikon D800. Optically, no complaints. Focus is quick. Downside is it is heavy and bulky and not something that I like to carry around all day.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
