Pros: Sharpness to all openings, af, general yield, blurry, colors (if they depend on the lens)

Cons: Weight and clutter (but are in line with the competition), dials that harden at the first bump.

Opinion: Possessed twice after years, exceptional optics, sharpness that I struggle to find in other zooms, I do not know who says that it is not sharp at the edges maybe should show it to a service center because my two owned at 2.8 had definitely edges and corners vouchers that closing became great (if anyone has any doubts I can safely send him some nef). I used it mainly to photograph people, and then a little bit of everything. For people (and children) I used it at f2.8 at all focal points, I never had anything to complain about, indeed, it had an exceptional yield and gave a three-dimensionality even if "only" 2.8 that I liked to die for. In the long exposures for some landscape at 24 was crisp all over the frame. Then I sold everything to have the eye af of the sony house but , lightness aside, I have to say that once I got to know it with d750 almost did not miss a shot and still guaranteed excellent results and when the a7iii struggles with the eye af for poor lighting , he (with d750) did not make a crease. Once you buy it in conditions ok without decentral dull or yield problems at the edges this is the ultimate all-rounder optics that you keep until fields, unless you buy bodies with many mpx then I do not know what to say but on the 24 of the d750 it simply made me delighted especially for the sharpness. The vignette is there but I'm never interested because in nikon you recover it without problems, even if you pushed the exposure, without ruining the image. If it weighs too much it is not his fault, a decently built 24 70 2.8 can't weigh 200 grams and in fact there are simply no 24 70 70 2.8 zooms built well for FF that weigh little. In conclusion, I say that like all cameras the lenses must be tested and used to make "real" photos and not mental pippe, only so you really appreciate every single component for its characteristics and quality, if you buy it in this perspective this zoom will not disappoint you as it has never disappointed any photographer who is not of Sunday, but who uses it to take photos, if instead you want to buy it for boredom leave it alone. If you want to buy it with the hope of being able to make spectacular photos then you will be disappointed like so many others because this zoom does not work wonders take photos for you, in this case better a nice photography course. I forgot, with 20 euros I replaced the tyres of the second model because they bought used and were a bit hardened, but it depends mainly on the sweating type of those who use it because every lens I bought new and held for 15 years has never had any problem tyres. I read that to many they loosen but even then, with 20 euros about the new original buys and change in a minute.

Pros: Excellent quality in the center, bright colors, excellent maneuverability.

Cons: Bad edges on 30 mega sensors up, weight and footprint.

Opinion: I don't know how to say it's a vision without flaws. The edges at almost all focal lengths are very scarce. You have to diaphragm at least 8 to have decent results, but then, as you ask for the review of Chausseur D'images (the only honest), why buy a 2.8? A 24 for landscape is almost unusable. Just print already at 30x40 to notice the difference in quality between center and edges. It's a reportage perspective, where you don't have to be too careful with the edges. It still makes it better in medium and long distances rather than at minimum. After 10 years, bought the D850, and saw how it went I replaced it with fixed. If you have to use a handyman zoom at closed diaphragms on 24/85, it behaves very well and costs 350 euros used (see Tom Hogan). From 5.6 onwards it goes slightly worse than 24/70, but only slightly.

Pros: sharpness, colors, brightness, ideal focal range.

Cons: External tires, they say "the price"

Opinion: I bought one to replace a 28-70 AFS 2.8, an exceptional optics but which lacked the step at the bottom towards 24 mm. I used it for 4 years on D700 but then sold it to try other brands. After a fairly intense use, the external coating tires were dull, I think they are very sensitive to hand sweat and natural heat. Today after 5 years that I have remade a kit Nikon, because the first love never forget, I bought it again. My copy still has 4 months to live so I don't know if in the meantime mum Nikon has changed the quality of the rubber coatings, only time will tell me. For the rest I preferred this version not stabilized either because I knew her for a long time and in fact of reliability gave me security and because of the stabilized version in many argue is not really sharper than this version.

Pros: Good optical quality, fast and responsive autofocus, excellent for professional use

Cons: Building from "let me replace every year"

Opinion: What about, a great lens as far as optical quality is concerned. You certainly do not do the landscapes at 24mm, but it was not born for This. Unfortunately the quality of construction compared to a 28-70 is ridiculous, and every year you will replace the tires at the service Center. Too bad that Nikon has lost the urge to produce granite optics, and to make lenses "belline to behold", has sacrificed so much Durability. If you take a 28-70, this in comparison will seem like a toy. In summary it is a nice lens, excellent for professionals, but consider that every year will take a stroll from the Photoriparatore. Then if you want to go for weddings with the equipment that seems to have made a war...

Pros: Build quality, first-rate lenses

Cons: Too bulky and heavy. Price

Opinion: I bought this lens several years ago, and since then I've never stopped using this kind of optics. To put it all previously I had the 28-70 f/2.8 But on the most beautiful of a photo shoot once mounted the AF of the 28-70 misfires, forcing me to fall back on an old 35-70 f/2.8 owe by a colleague, for me was a real nightmare. Anyway returning to the 24-70 in my opinion is a great lens that I think I could not help it, I think it is one of the most beautiful built so far by Nikon. Lately I'm going to buy the most modern version, I'm evaluating the thing. The price buying it new was high, but given the use that you can make the quality you pay.
