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.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR Reviews
I've been shooting people events with this lens for several years. It has never let me down. Tack sharp, excellent color & contrast. Recently I tried the 24-70mm f/2.8 VR zoom just to compare. I could not find any case where that lens made superior images. It costs twice as much. It's heavier. It wasn't as fast to bring up, compose and shoot as this smaller/lighter lens with it's longer range. For me there is no need to look further. If you'll be banging into other photographers on a news assignment or hiking through tropical humidity, get the 24-70 f/2.8 VR. It's probably more durable. But I'm retired. I take care of my gear. In this environment, the 24-120 f/4 can't be beat.
A truly versatile, beautiful lens
This has been my go-to lens for years! I use it for most of my shoots, and it always works wonders! The glass is super crisp and clear, you get so much out of this lens! Here are some photos I've taken with it.
Great 24/120 mm lens!!
This is my 2nd 24/120 mm lens. The first lens 24/120 mm 3.5 - 5.6 G. 72 mm was my first SLR lens which I had for over 16 years!! Unfortunately, there are no parts available to fix the vibrations it was having. So I brought the 24-120 mm 1.4 G ED 77mm lens. It is great, with 77 mm to let in more light. Ed in MI.
A great kit lens
This lens came with my D-810 when I bought it a couple of years ago, so I guess you could call it a kit lens. This is the most versatile lens I have in my bag, and there are a few lenses in there. I have used it for just about everything, weddings, location portraiture, landscapes, product and still life. This lens is rarely taken off my camera. I would be lost without it and if anything were to happen to it, I'd have another on order immediately. I highly recommend this lens.
My most versatile lens!
I am impressed with the versatility of this lens; from landscapes to portraits and indoor events. I've had a great experience with it all. There's a bit of vignetting at it's widest point (nothing Photoshop can't fix) and it's on the heavier side, which is to be expected with this size lens and quality glass. Overall, I'm super happy with the results and will be keeping it in my professional kit for quite a while.
Excellent Zoom Lens!
I've been using this lens for almost nine years. Have shot thousands of RAW files with it, first on a D800 and the last year on a Z7. I've shot location and studio portraits with it, I've shot editorial location, and I've shot architecture and interiors with it, and been on very rough construction sites with it all day. I even shot a 'Gladiator Run' all afternoon in 100+ heat. I have shot fine art landscape with it. I work all my files in LR Classic and finish in PS. I'm attaching a shot from 2020 of pecan trees in the winter. Sharpness is MORE than excellent. The new 24-200 Z is supposed to be even better, when it's finally available.
Great lens from NIKON as usual.
Have used NIKON gear since 1968. Never disappointed.....this lens continues my trend of satisfaction.
I used this lens to shoot a wedding and baby shower and the results were great.
