Nikon 2145B overview

  • 1Description

Nikon's 24-120mm zoom lens is now even smaller than its predecessor, the AF Zoom-Nikkor 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6D IF and features an innovative Vibration Reduction (VR) system that allows handheld telephoto zoom shooting even in poorly lit conditions. The VR system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed 3 stops (8 times) faster.

Covering many commonly used focal lengths in one compact zoom lens, the 24-120mm proves itself to be a unique and popular choice when a variety of subjects may be encountered. Ideal where space and weight are restricted - such as travel photography - the wide zoom range offers the opportunity to capture a variety of subjects both close by and far away, from interiors to portraits.

Note: G-type lenses are fully compatible only with the F5, F100, N80, N75, N65, N55, D1-series and D100 (or any newer model) cameras.

Note: VR-feature will only work with Nikon's F5, F100, N80, N75, N65, D100 & D1-series (or any newer model) cameras.

Note: When mounted on Nikon digital cameras (Nikon DX format) D2-Series, D1-Series, D100 and D70, D90 digital cameras, the lens' picture angle becomes 61°-13°20' and its 35mm equivalent focal length range is approx. 36-180mm.

Note: AF-S feature is not supported by certain camera models. Please click here for a list of compatible models.

Vibration Reduction (VR) minimizes image blur caused by camera shake (cancelable). Two available VR modes :
1) Vibration Reduction for both the viewfinder image and the image on film. Moderate VR operation is executed to ensure viewing comfort for the viewfinder image.
2) VR for the image on the film only (conserves battery power).
New optical design incorporates two ED glass elements and two aspherical elements for superior optical performance
Built-in A/M switch enables instant switching from autofocus to manual focus (Lock mechanism provided)
Silent Wave Motor for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet AF
New cosmetic design identical to current AF-S Nikkor lenses
Filter attachment does not rotate during focusing or zooming.
The rounded diaphragm (7 blades) makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural

    Nikon 2145B reviews

    Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto AF Zoom Nikkor 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Autofocus Lens is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 64.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really great lens I have been using this lens as my main lens for over four years and have taken some of my finest pictures ever. I find it very versatile and very sharp. I was using it on a FujiFilm S3 Pro and now on my D700. Enlargements to 13x19 are excellent. I've read some of the negative reviews about this lens, but I strongly disagree. In this digital age, it's easy to stop in at your local camera store and fire off a few test frames with this lens before you buy it. You can even compare it to one or more of the more expensive pieces. Don't buy this lens on my recommendation, try it out for yourself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens I bought this lens to replace my old Nikon 24-120 lens. The first major use of this lens was a commercial location shoot hand held for 8 hours. It preformed great! No lens creep, I can handhold to 1/30th of a second and 1/15th if I hold my breath. The VR is something that I love because my work is editorial in style. I was shooting with my D3 between ASA 800 and 3200 tops. Combined with the ability to shoot high ASA ratings with Nikon's new sensor and the VR capabilities of this lens, this is the perfect combination. No need for me to shell out for faster lenses. This has always been my main lens and I was happy when Nikon kept it in its stable for the D3 sensor because it is full frame. I can find nothing to complain about.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from promising lens but lacking sharpness Used it for portraits and family. Have compared it in test shoots with my old Nikor AF 70-210mm f3.5-5.6 and Nikor MF Prime 105mm F2.5. Sharpest was the prime 105mm, 2nd the old 70-210mmm AF zoom and last this new 4-120mm VR zoom. Even the best 24-120mmm foto's were kind of sharp but not as tack sharp as the 105mm. I tried hard to like this lens as it would have been great value for a great portrait zoom range, however am taking it back. Also had to shoot at 1/200 to avoid blur, so have not been able to witness VR advantage. Great value for family snapshots on a consumer DSLR, but not at level of a D700.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from unfairly maligned lens. this lens gets hammered by pro reviews/blogs/rants, but really, how much would we have been willing to spend for a lens like this 15 years ago? broad zoom, solid construction, VR, swift autofocus. back then, it'd been worth much more than $. a great lens for capturing family, street life & travel, it has an exceptional VR system that helps you forget about the slow aperture. moreover, since the D700 is surprisingly good at ISO 6400, who needs a lens at f1.4? this lens may also be sharper than some reviews might suggest. my copy is as sharp as both my 50 f1.4 nikkor & my old PC 28mm f3.5. use a step-up ring to 77mm to avoid vignetting with thicker professional subject is architecture; this lens isn't acceptable for that. too much barrel & pincushion. but normal photographers don't shoot brick walls head-on and can work around those shortcomings. save the money you were about to spend on the 28-70 f2.8 and pay down your credit card instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon reputation is still intact I purchased the product to pick up a mid-range advantage and fill a gap for general use between my nikkor 18-55mm and 70-300mm VR lenses. The lense performs superbly with the D300 body, quiet and quick with no distortion whats so ever on shots that I have enlarged. The VR feature gives the user a couple of extra faster shooting stops over a standard lense in the same class of optics. The application range this lense covers is so diverse that the need for the 18-55 and the 70-300 are now relegated to speciality shooting only. For the typical armature and/or professional that feels as though he or she needs a little extra edge over a standard 28-70mm range, I highly recommend stepping up to this lense, it is well worth the extra cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon 24-120 VR I purchased the Nikon 24-120 VR as a walk around lens for the D700. I was worried about it because of all the bad press that this lens gets on the net regarding softness. My copy is excellent. It's a little soft wide open and at the extremes of it's focal lengths which is to be expected. After all it's not the quality or price of the Nikon 24-70 F2.8. However stopped down to around F8 or F11 it's very, very good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again!!! This product is a christmas gift for a friend. He is elderly but still likes to take quality wildlife shots with good glass. However the longer lenses with exceptional glass are way to heavy for him, this lens fit the bill perfectly. I tested it and the clarity of the shots are just about as good as my 70 - 200 2.8 canon lens!! I was thrilled with the results and the weight wont be an issue for him. wonderful lens ...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's not a bad lens Sorry for my bad English.... I remembered when my junior bought D90 together with this lens as his first gear.....I think I have chosen a wrong lens! he said. I took it along with me for about 2 days. On the next 3rd day, I showed him some candids and question him.... Can you find any problems with these pictures? He kept looking around and impressed with those pictures and cannot find any problem beside so many good photos from every focal, aperture and all details. I told him as my last advice..... The man behind the gun! So, This is not a bad lens, maybe more than enough
