I have have always wanted a lens that would do the things that I wanted to do. I hate being inhibited by my equipment. I own other nikon lenses in this range but felt that they did not focus fast and as sharp as I wanted. I read almost all reviews of the lens I could get a hold of. I spoke to a few pro-photographers. No one had anything bad to say about this lens other than its heft. It IS a heavy lens, but you get used to it. The weight no longer becomes an issue once you feel the sheer joy of using this lens. It focuses fast, real fast. The image this lens produces is amazing. I own the Nikon 18-70 lens and let me say that this lens does not even compare to the sharpness and ease of use of the 24-70mm lens. It took me over a year to make the purchase. This was going to be my first pro level lens and to be frank, its a lot of money to put out there for an amateur photographer. But I finally bit the bullet and purchased the lens. I do not regret every penny I paid for it and wondered why I bought all the other lenses first. BUY THIS LENS. YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!! I included a picture just to show you what this lens can do even in the hands of an amateur!

The lens performs perfectly. It is sharp and the low light ability is top notch. However, there is a problem with metal flecks and shavings showing up behind the rear element of the lens. This doesn't happen to everyone and it took about 6 months for the specs to show up in mine, so now it has to go in for repair. That's annoying at the least, especially for a professional grade lens.

The Professional Standard for Normal Focal Length Zoom Lenses

By 

from San Diego, California

Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f2.8G ED Camera Lens:

The Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom lens is not only extremely sharp, it is equally versatile. It is my go-to lens for weddings and other social events. It also does very well as a food photography lens, as evidenced below by an image taken at a shutter speed of one second (on a tripod), an aperture of f/11, a focal length of 45mm, an ISO of 640, Matrix Metering, and Auto White Balance.

Ridiculously Amazing!

By 

from Atlanta, GA, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f2.8G ED Camera Lens:

Ok, I'm not quite a pro but I've been shooting long enough now to know the difference between sub-par quality and spot on accuracy. The 24-70 is a legend of a lens! I rented one a couple of years ago for a trip just to see what all of the hype was about and it didn't take 10 shots to realize just how special the 24-70 really is. Here's why it's special: it's freaking sharper than a razor blade! Not to mention the color rendition you get with the lens is truly superb. Build quality is military grade with solid, super fast focus. It IS quite heavy but there is something about the feel of a heavy piece of glass that I kind of like, especially on a heavy body like my D810. I was coming from a 24-85 kit lens which was not too shabby either. I really didn't believe the 24-70 could possibly be that much better and to be fair, better is a relative term. I did get some fantastic shots with the 24-85, no doubt, but there's just something about the 24-70 that takes it to another level. I even purchased the 24-120 (which has VR) thinking perhaps it would shake out to be a better overall choice due to it's employment of vibration reduction and it's added focal length. I REALLY wanted to like the lens better than the 24-70 because I could always use more focal length. I did numerous comparisons between the two, testing bokeh, color, sharpness, etc. But in the end, the 24-70 once again came out the winner! This was mainly in the area of sharpness for which it excels in every way. Thus, I returned the 24-120. I find that there is a psychological aspect of shooting with such a legendary piece of photo gear. You just feel like what you're doing matters more. I've seen beautiful images taken with both the 24-85 and the 24-120 so I'm certainly not dogging either, but if you want the best overall image quality and are ok with sacrificing the added 50mm of focal length (and more importantly, the extra $$$) then you've got to go with this masterpiece of a lens!

Professional's Kit Lens

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f2.8G ED Camera Lens:

Why you have to have one? - This is a lens that every professional has. If a professional can only use 1 lens in his life, this is the lens, because this is made for general purposes. Why you don't have to have one? - It's expensive; and if you're not really serious with photography, just try other lenses because this lens is built for the serious and professionals. What's I like about this lens? - It's sharp on all focal lengths and apertures, renders color very well, renders out-of-focus blur very well, and this is solidly built for professionals because it can withstand in any weather conditions and hazardous situations, for a bit. - It's not too short, and not too long, it's just alright. - This lens is made to be in between of the specialty lenses not only for Nikon but for the other brands. Hence, being called by many as a general lens. What's I don't like about this lens? - It's heavy. - It's expensive. - You get a bit of attention when you take photos of other people in the streets, but not too much. Take another lens for street photography, if ever. - If this lens is not that wide for you, get a lens wider than 24. - If this lens is a bit short for portrait and you need longer reach, get a longer focal length lens. - If you're not satisfied with the bokeh, or you are not satisfied with how 2.8 handles low light situations, get a prime 50mm or 85mm with a 1.8/1.4 aperture lens.

Somewhat disappointed at quality

By 

from Portland, OR, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f2.8G ED Camera Lens:

I was not getting sharp images with this lens so I had it checked. It was back focusing considerably. It took a setting of 8 on my D800 focus adjustment to correct. That is too much for an expensive prro lens in my opinion. The lens is also very heavy and bulky but extremely versatile and reasonably fast.

    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f2.8G ED Camera Lens:

    This is one of the Nikon "holy trinity" lenses to have. Really great as a walk about lens, although the field of view will be somewhat limited on a DX camera body due to the crop factor. Nevertheless, I would still highly recommend this lens to anyone with a serious passion for picture-taking and deep pockets as the lens is a bit pricey. You get what you pay for and this lens delivers exceptional image quality!!!

    Wonderful beginner camera

    By 

    from Tacoma, WA, USA

    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f2.8G ED Camera Lens:

    The quality of the pictures are excellent. Nice and clear, color is almost exact, it has great manual options that are easy to use, and is nice and light. The video however, is kind of difficult. It is nice and clear but almost every time I try and record something, it goes for about 5 seconds then says "Recording interrupted" and I have lost some good videos because of that. All that needs to change is the video problem, and the 55-200 kit coming in red.

    So Far, the D3200 works like a dream. Works equally well indoors or outdoors, day or night! It seems to be one terrific camera.

    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f2.8G ED Camera Lens:

    This camera is very nice. It comes with a very good beginner lens and has good quality. This camera also is very light weight for the size and is easy to learn. The instruction manual helps a lot for the basics but if you want to learn more you may want to take a class or watch a you tube video. I would definitely recommend this camera for a beginner photographer.
