Nikon 24-120mm f/4.0 Overview

  • 1Description

Possibly the single most versatile lens, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR from Nikon spans a useful wide-angle to short-telephoto range and features a constant f/4 maximum aperture for consistent performance throughout the zoom range. Three aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements are used to greatly reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations 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. Supporting the optics is VR II image stabilization, which compensates for camera shake to help realize sharp imagery when shooting handheld. A Silent Wave Motor is also used to provide fast and precise autofocus performance, along with full-time manual focus override.

Standard zoom is designed for FX-format F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 36-180mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range.
Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two 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.
VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake to benefit shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field techniques.

    Nikon 24-120mm f/4.0 Reviews

    AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR Lens is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 391.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly Sharp! I originally purchased this lens for my Nikon D800E some time ago as a walk-around lens, but honestly rarely used it, opting instead for my24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8. However, recently I decided to give it a real workout during a tour of NYC, and boy was I surprised. The photos were amazingly sharp, the VR was a real plus. and the maximum aperture of f/4 was definitely fast enough. I mean you're not going to get the nice Bokeh of the f/2.8 lens, but for shooting landscapes, and reducing the number of lenses in your kit for a day of shooting, it was perfectly fine. I will undoubtedly use this lens on a more-regular basis.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Swiss arrny knife of lenses I am an enthusiast and not a pro. I enjoy taking photos of benign looking things and hopefully present them in ways which might aid others like me to look at things differently. This lens has become my daily glass attached to my camera. It has enough range to capture the the things which surrounds daily life. It allows me to come close to my subject or stay back if needed. The fixed f/4 is certainly powerful to use in daylight, indoors and even into the evening hours. Photos are sharp and the colors stay vivid. Graceful bokeh effect is achieved during proper settings. My only quibble is the vignetting when pushed to its full 120mm range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Off the Fence After shooting a wedding and concluding a photo safari through Utah, Idaho, Washington and the Oregon coast, I felt compelled to update my review of 8/9/13. Turns out, this 24-120 f/4 lens is a winner and now seems to be permenantly glued to my D600. Out of the 2500+ pics taken over the last 2 months, only about 50 were shot with other lenses (70-300 telephoto or 70-180 macro). Sure, the lens has some limitations with respect to focal range and speed, but with a little imagination, luck and the proper settings, one could easily get by with only the 24-120 lens in their bag. So now, I am off the fence and back into the field (and heartily recommend this lens).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great walk-around/all-round lens Had the older version many years ago, and this lens is heads and shoulders above what the older one was. Great lens all around, great range to work with. Hesitant at first about f/4, rather than f/2.8, but the higher ISO capabilities of newer sensors mitigates that concern. You do lose a little DoF control, but it's alright. After having this a while, I'm considering selling my 24-70... the VR on this lens is nice for the everyday, and is a little less bulky than the 24-70. I'd rather free up a little cash to go towards another lens... (thinking selling the Nikon 24-70 and 70-200VR1 for a Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 OS) Bottom line - It's a good lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good General Purpose Lense I have only had the lens a few week, but am very happy so far. I have it paired to a Nikon 300S body and it is taking the place of an 18-105 lens that I had been using for my carry around lens. The constant aperature is very nice. Pictures are noticably sharper than those shot with the 18-105. The 24-120 is considerably heavier than the 18-105, but the sharpness is well worth the additional weight to carry around. The operation of the zoom ring is smooth, but a little far forward for small hands or short fingers. I would love to have had an f/2.8, but the VR appears to give adequate stability so that I don't miss the additional f stop in low light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable Lens As part of an eventual conversion to the FX platform I've been buying FX lenses. They are being used on a DX body, the Nikon D7000. This lens is better than I expected. The auto focus is very fast, the colors really do pop, and the flexibility brought by this particular focal range is fantastic. While this lens does not get you 2.8 low light shooting, the VRII works wonders. I shot in sunset light on the beach and easily got 3 to 4 fstops of stability. In fact during the 4 day trip to the beach I only took this lens off once. The sunsets shot with this lens are among the best taken, some of that is better technique, I know, but some of it is this wonderful lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice general purpose lense I had moved from a D7000 to a D800e and wanted a basic zoom that would match the DX kit 18-105mm lens. This lens perfectly met my needs. It has enough reach to satisfy my informal shooting style and is considerably less expensive than the 24-70 f/2.8. The optical quality is more than adequate for my intended use, and I'm not really going to miss that extra stop. The VR does work well, and the lens focuses quickly. It does display some distortion and vignetting, but Lightroom takes care of any problems quickly. I haven't noticed any really nasty CA problems. So...this is a reasonably priced lens with a good reach, wide enough f-stop, and acceptable optical performance. I'm happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wicked Sharp!! All I can say is wow! This lens delivers in all situations: fast, accurate, beautiful colors, excellent contrast, and a nice range of focal lengths. Mounted on the D3, it also performs surprising well in low light. The 24-70 f/2.8 is 1 stop faster but the D3 body's fast ISO range makes the difference between f/4 and f/2.8 negligible, so I'd rather have the longer focal lengths. For very dark situations, an f/1.4 lens would be the better choice anyway. The 24-120 f/4, along with the 14-24 f/2.8, makes a complete kit for going anywhere for a variety of subjects. Highly recommended!
