Commonly referred to as the workhorse of the pros, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED from Nikon is a versatile standard zoom characterized by its bright and sophisticated optical design. The constant f/2.8 maximum aperture affords consistent performance and illumination throughout the zoom range, and suits working in low light and for working with selective focus techniques. Three precision glass molded aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements are used to greatly reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to produce a high degree of sharpness and clarity. Also benefitting image quality, both a Nano Crystal Coat and a Super Integrated Coating have been applied to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy. Additionally, complementing the imaging capabilities, a Silent Wave Motor affords fast and precise autofocus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to benefit both stills and video applications.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED Reviews
I've been working towards getting a 24-70mm f/2.8g to add to my lens lineup. Just getting into utilizing the lens, but have not been disappointed yet!
Sharp and perfect for indoor and outdoor. Do NOT go cheap with your lens.

I bought this lens at B&H on August 12th, 2010 and it's working hard flawlessly until now. Need more info?
Product as expected!
This product arrived early and in good condition.
I've been absolutely blown away at the quality of this lens, I've never had pictures as crisp as they are in this one. The fixed aperture makes it so much easier to get the proper lighting needed.
Comparing to a Nikkor 14-24 MM VR. I use a D5200 body. The 14-24 is sharp as a tack. The 24-70 is not. I have tried different auto focusing, tried manual focus, been extra careful on the shutter release. Tried different combinations of aperture-shutter. Just slightly off. I have wondered about upgrading to a more expensive 24-70 VR lens. May return to B+H. I would cosider upgrading to a better camera body if my 14-24 images were not so sharp.
I purchased this lens for concert photography. I had been pushing my f/4 lens to the limits requiring a very high ISO (8,000 to 10,000) to get a fast shutter speed. I recently photographed Wrecking Crue, a Motley Crue Tribute band with this lens, (ISO 2,500). The zoom was smooth, unlike a few reviews I read about it being a little sticky. I am totally satisfied with the results I got from the first set of photos taken with this.
B&H Photo is the best, Excellent & Professional!
Great & Easy in everything, service, pricing and quality product! I recommend it. I've been purchasing with B&H for two years. I hope to be your buyer again in the future. Thank you!
