Nikon AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR Lens Review
19 July 2012
Excerpt: A standard zoom for FX format DSLRs covering wide angle to telephoto focal lengths without the size, weight or cost of f/2.8 equivalents. This lens costs around £520 and includes Nikon's second generation VR system and silent focusing with full time manual focus override. Can it really compete for quality with Nikon's professional lenses? We'll find out in this review.
Pros: Good sharpness in the centre throughout the zoom range, VRII stabilisation, Good build, Relatively compact and lightweight when compared to Nikon's other FX lenses
Cons: Distortion at both ends of the zoom range, Falloff of illumination towards the corners at maximum aperture
