    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.

    Somewhat disappointed at quality

    By FotoTeach

    from Portland, OR, USA

    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f2.8G ED 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!!!

      NIKON IT'S THE BEST

      By GADZ

      from Durban, South Africa

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

      I bought it 4 months ago and change the small camera and my old film SLR... Now I have excellent pictures was taken with this camera, it's very easy to use and allows being creative. With a tripod, remote control and these basic lenses it's enough to start in this beautiful world of photography. But if you want to make more professional pictures in movement it's better to think to buy lenses with VR and now I bought a new lens with VR and the pictures in action are perfect. Good camera and good basic lenses by Nikkor. This is the cheapest bundle for to start with SLR cameras. Enjoy your pictures by NIKON.

      Great features with limitations for the wildlife/landscape photographer.

      By BillyG

      from Riverside, CA, USA

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

      I jusy purchased the camera today so I little to no experience with the camera. However I will comment on what I've Discovered so far. The requirement for the use of an eyepiece cap under the conditions specified indicates a faulty SLR design, not to mention the fact that it is very difficult to remove the eyepiece and insert the plug. I this will be especially cumbersome when shooting wildlife and to a lesser degree landscapes. I will however reserve my final evaluation until I've the opportunity to evaluate it in the field.

      great camera! easy to use

      By silverfox96

      from Pennsylvania, USA

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

      This was the first DSLR camera i bought and i must admit im glad i got it. plus i love the detail it gets, people say that megapixels dont matter but the more mega pixels, the more detail, plus if you need to crop the image, its not going to lose much if any quality/detail. the 1080p video is nice feature and it even has a really good built-in mic unlike most cameras, it was abe to catch voices from the other end of the room with no problem, and sounds great! it was at an anniversary where i was recording a video for a surprise guest, and it turned out great! not audio problems what-so-ever. now, the only down side is the focusing while recording, it doesn't really focus good, plus the sound of it focusing can be heard in the audio a bit. that could use some improvement. but overall this camera is wonderful, and easy to use, i would recommend getting it if your new to photography and a looking for a good, cheap, beginner/amateur starter DSLR camera, this one is for you. or maybe one of the newer D300s that are coming out.

      This is a very good camera. It almost is too good what with the guide modes and video. Though maybe useful, the simplicity of a simple camera is lost with the "bells and whistles."

      Very good Camera

      By Texan63

      from Texas

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

      I have had this camera for approximately a month and have taken maybe 200 photos. I have been extremely pleased with the quality of the photo's. One concern is the Warranty Programs "Yellow" form that is included with the camera and lenses. It states on the Warranty that Registration within ten days of purchase required for ESC coverage. I disagree with Nikon's policy on this. I purchased a new TV, this camera, some Video Software and had two reunions to attend and put together a photo program for these two reunions. Nikon needs to realize this 10 day window is unreasonable. Another complaint is Nikon's "Update of Software" page. It is very confusing and I am unsure what needs to Updated if anything. Surely Nikon can develop an "Update Software" page that will "only lists" software and information that my camera needs.
