Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED Overview

By B&H Photo's

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.

Standard zoom is designed for FX-format F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 36-105mm equivalent focal length range.
Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture affords consistent illumination throughout the zoom range and also affords greater control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus techniques.
Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Three extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
Both a Nano Crystal Coat and a Super Integrated Coating have been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field techniques.

Sharp and perfect for indoor and outdoor. Do NOT go cheap with your lens.

Amazing!

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.

Confused

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.

Awesome!

I bought this refurbished after my 16-80mm lens was damaged beyond repair. It's like brand new and at a cost much reduced from new. It is the lens that stays on my camera for most everything except for sports and wildlife. It's plenty wide enough for me on my full-size crop sensor and works great as a portrait and landscape lens. I have even shot macro scenes successfully with it. Great bargain.

Great Lens!!

Can someone explain the difference between this lens and the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR Lens BH #NI247028VR • MFR #20052? I noticed after the 2.8 aperture spec on each one that the letter is different one is an e and the other a G. Completely lost on the difference between these two? Please help :)
Asked by: James
Quite simply one lens has VR (vibration reduction) and the other does not. Also the VR lens has the E designation which refers to Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.

I purchased the E version of this lens last year. I am planning to buy the G version since I could use it on my F6 in addition to my D850s. My question is: is the lens still made in Japan?

Underneath the lens is labeled 'Made in Japan', so I would assume so.

I am looking for lens/camera to take pictures of my nephews' high school basketball games in the gym. Lighting is horrible and I have never been able to take a clear, crisp shot during the games. Will this camera work for what I am wanting? Does anyone have anything better to suggest for gymnasium basketball action shots? Any help is appreciated.
Asked by: Angela
Yes, this lens would be good for B-ball games and everyday photos, if you are situated under the hoop, if not, then the 70-200mm 2.8 would be ideal.
