Pros: Macrocontrast, sharpness, AF, construction, colors

Cons: A little bit of AC, it costs a kidney, weight

Opinion: This is along with the Canon 70-200 2.8 The best zoom lens ever had, it makes the Nikon DX sensor excellent. It Has a very capillary yield, warm colors, all the features of what you resume have repercussions with an unusual sharpness and three-dimensionality for a zoom. Who says that at 2.8 is soft broke it or Starato, is well sharp and contrasted, keeping a good reading shadows, reaches the peak at 5.6, is fine even in landscaping. Heavy, over 800g, Comrie is built a tank, however every time I see what I strive to convince me to leave it on the nozzle. The AF is never wrong, only thing a bit ' of purple AC, in post take off with a click. If you can afford it is to buy.

Pros: The 24-70 f 2.8 as it should have been

Cons: Price to the new

Opinion: Stunning lens, one wonders why Nikon has made a professional APS-C zoom as well, and the 24-70 Plasticaccia. It is really egregia, starting from the construction, to go to the optical quality, and to conclude with the speed of the AF. It's big, all metal, with a plastic lens hood but really well built. Definitely the best APS-C zoom on the market. The stabilizer is absent, so it is a matter to consider. Obligatory purchase for professionals who use Nikon APS-C (maybe on d500 where it generates a stunning coupled especially as AF speed in the dark), but also for advanced amateurs who want to stay in reduced format. Priced at around €600, it's a must-buy.

Pros: A real Nikon pro at the old. Af. Interesting used if really in good condition not above the 550 euros.

Cons: Dated, lack of stabilizer, price of the new today.

Opinion: I've had this gorgeous optics for a few years on D200 and D300. I think it's fair to pay tribute. Nothing to say. Colors, saturation, contrasts, depth, backlight, typically in the best Nikon tradition. Crystal clear. Fast and high performance AF. The valid Sigma 17-50 2.8 which I also tested for good, simply disappears at the comparison but costs around 250 euros new. Built like a tank, in DX and in zone of war, crawling in the mud at night under the tracers wielding a D500, I would still like him also to use it as improper weapon to the must and I think-but I am not sure-that should be able to solve the sensor. However it suffers from time. Not so much because it is big, imposing and heavy but because it does not have the stabilizer, the distortion is there all even if today it goes to place with a click in zero time. In the years of the Admirals in DX its price seemed more than justified, stabilizer aside, for someone could still be today. Great lens also from portrait, with a blurry to TA that has nothing to envy to its full frame counterparts. Today – Personal opinion – I preferred him the new 16-80 2.8/4. Maybe even a better thread sharpness at the edges, focal length "all do" certainly more comfortable, finally the nanocrystals and the last generation stabilizer have revived my old D300 that I will keep until I can use it only as a door stop. Sure it's plastic, stracosta, it's not weather sealed like the 17-55 but it's much more compact and lighter. With the D500 around, if they made an updated version of the 17-55 maybe 16-58 always 2.8 and built with tank tropicalized, with the latest generation VR around 1500 euros, could make sense. The full format now for me is without mirror, but who had DX-level bodies with a discreet kit of optics, maybe a thought could also make us.

Pros: Sharp, accurate and fast AF, beautiful colors, solid construction, f 2.8 constant, deep black, soft blur.

Cons: Important but compensated by quality, flare but difficult to trigger that I personally do not suffer, if it was tropicalized it would have no defects, I'm so glad I did not mention the cost.

Opinion: I have this optic for over a year, I've also tried sigma 17-50 f2.8 which I gave for despair, here I feel serene, every shot has a potential, colors that you do not find in other basic optics, has a fast and accurate AF even a pursuit, as everyone suffers the change of depth, blacks make the difference and the smile using this optic is perpetual. It is not tropicalized and stabilized. Its soft and pleasant blur, from the landscape to the portrait to the night, I judge it a stupendous optic from which I could not separate.

Pros: Sharpness at TA; Precise AF; Color rendering; exceptional hold in backlighting..zero flare (I underline that it has no fluorite lenses or anti-reflection treatment).

Cons: Price? (diepende, I do not use it in a professional way ... if I used it ... with rain or something else I would say that the price would be adequate)

Opinion: I have owned it for about 3 years; I made about 2500 shots; I mount it on D7100; even with fast moving subjects do not miss a shot (goes into difficulty, but not always, with subjects in strong approach, or removal, with the direction coinciding with the shooting). The color rendering is excellent and the weight I would say is not a problem, indeed, on the D7100 increases already the size for a more secure grip (advice cmq BG on the machine). I do not feel the need for VR for my photographic needs (mainly people on the move ... so I'm always at 1/200 -1/250 to avoid camera shake). I took it as a replacement for the sigma 18-50 f2.8 HSM EX-DC ... incomparable.
