I am on my 2nd Nikon 24-120mm VR lens. the first was damaged in a fall. The insurance company sent me a check and I could have gotten any lens with the money but I had to get another 24-120mm because I just love the lens. I keep it on one of my camera bodies at all time. it is super sharp and crisp. On my digital camera bodies (DX bodies D300 and D200) the lens is fast to focus and well balanced. On my F100 film camera the lens is a true charmer. 24mm is very wide and the range is all I need from most of my photography jobs. The VR really helps after a full day of shooting when my arms and hands start to shake more. Just remember the lens will not last long if you drop it down 24 stone steps like I did .. but it was worth getting another one the very next day....

Ken Rockwell got this one right in his review as one of Nikon's ten worst lens ever made. it is horribly soft focusing at any F stop below F8. and a ton of Barrel distortion at its wide 24mm. If I were Nikon I would have scrubbed this one from the line up as it does nothing to further Nikon or Nikkor's great reputation for superior products and quality.

Excellent General Duty Zoom

By Tom

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon AF-S VR 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED Zoom Lens:

I bought this lens over two years ago as part of a D700 DSLR Kit and still love it. The vibration reduction feature has helped a lot with my available light/hand held pictures and sports pictures. The camera with this lens is not too bulky to carry most anywhere. Occasionally the autofocus will be fooled but most often it autofocuses quickly and correctly.I've owned Nikons since the 1960's and consider myself a serious amateur.

Good general purpose lens

By mre

from Carson City, NV

Comments about Nikon AF-S VR 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED Zoom Lens:

I owned this lens for quite some time and never really found it to be as poor as some have claimed. Than again, I am not a professional and I did not demand things from the lends that I knew it would not produce, given the price point of it. I recently sold it, only to upgrade to the new Nikon 28-300 mm lens, which allows me to leave my 70-300 mm lens home in a lot of situations. Overall, I must say that I was very satisfied with my 24-120 mm f 3.5 lens while I had it and put it to a lot of good use.

A good all around lens.

By G&L Bassman

from Boca Raton, FL

Comments about Nikon AF-S VR 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED Zoom Lens:

I've used less expensive, and more expensive Nikkors. The 24-120 may not be perfect, but what lens is. My D90 works very good with it. Brilliant colors, and crisp images. I like the metal ring over the plastic ring. If you need a lens with more specialized features, and can lay out the bucks, go for it. But for an every day user, this lens does what it's designed to do for it's price range as well.

Wait for the upgrade

By MJR

from Huntington Beach, CA

Comments about Nikon AF-S VR 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED Zoom Lens:

Rumor is a new version of this lens is coming out shortly. I will be the first in line if its what is being reported. A 24-120 F4 VR. The old version has lots of detractors carping about its sharpness. I have 2 of these lenses and sharpness has not been an issue. On a FX body this focal is a good one lens only walk about option ,

Nice but.....

By Alaska

from Anchorage, Alaska

Comments about Nikon AF-S VR 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED Zoom Lens:

The 24-120 is a good walk-a-bout lens, but falls short on maximum f stop, making it less useful for low light situations. I would gladly pay more for this zoom range with a max F 2.8.

The handiest lens

By jimmyd

from South Carolina

Comments about Nikon AF-S VR 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED Zoom Lens:

There is nothing I have to say in my opinion that is bad about this lens. I deliver 24x36 prints from jpg with no problems. I will say I get tired of people saying this lens is bad and not sharp, I have even heard it was one on Nikon's worst lenses. If this is the worst (and it is not,) the case is simple. Then Nikon does not make a bad lens.
