Opinion:There is no objective and absolute way to evaluate optics, so it depends on what are the expectations and the use that is made of them. I take pictures of landscapes, I use filters, easel, and I need a bag that is not very heavy, I am not a professional, I also make audio recordings in the field, so I ride with double equipment. In addition to a fixed 20mm f1.8, which is my favorite, I needed a zoom with which to have different possibilities both for landscapes, framing details, and to be able to capture even some non-human animal that presented itself to me in my travels in nature. This lens is a perfect travel companion, which contains all the features I was looking for. Obviously the difference is made by those who photograph, so I also recommend viewing the many examples of shots that are below, to understand the remarkable potential of this lens with a single price.
Pros:Value for money. Good optical quality, macro function.
Cons:Some flare problem in the backlight
Opinion:Recently purchased on the bay, winning an auction for only 150€. Used on the D700 I find it great as a handyman. On the d700 it is very balanced and I do not find any contraindications. Sharp, engraved images. Highly recommended if you find a used in good condition. Some complain about the weight but a zoom starting at f/2.8 cannot have "minimal" dimensions. A little soft to TA and extreme focal points, but it resolves by diaphragm a little.
Opinion:As I said for the 3.5-4.5 model review: you do a lot of talking about Nikon's 35mm/full frame average zooms, there are vague videos, articles, sites etc. to understand the differences between the versions above, that date in fullframe kit some have ago with filters from 67 and the latest version, the one with VR. I read everything about these 3 lenses and used them together and tested them for a long time both on fullframe and aps-c (dx). Leaving aside the technical speeches, I will come only to the hard, the only real usable lens is the 2.8-4 IF, the other 2 I found simply useless. Of course if you don't even have a lens it will help you to make generic photos but other than that you do little. The real difference is the version 2.8-4 IF Macro, the autofocus is not very fast but the colors are beautiful, the portraits have the right gap between subject and background, the glass of which it is composed feels that they are "old school". It has the usual problem of being more oxen and cartoonfrom 70mm onwards but at 85 you make us a really nice portrait. Before changing system was the last Nikon zoom I held. Bought today at 180 degrees will disfigure any other zoom. If you are looking for absolute performance you have to buy a fixed optics.
Opinion:It is an optic that can give good results on APS if you do not climb too much with mpix. This is my first 'digital' optic that at the time I paired with a D70, but it must be considered that it was born as a lens for use on film; comparing it to other 'standard' zooms of other brands, then it proved much superior to the contrast and the general sharpness of the image, and allowed me to capture beautiful images. As the number of machine bodies grows, to get to the 12 mpix of the D300, unfortunately began to show all its limits and from my comparative tests with the -bistracted- AFS VR 24-120 3.5/5.6 at full opening is much more kneaded at the edges, and then gradually improve closing the diaphragm, but without ever exceeding the 24-120 and I must say that this result surprised me not a little, but t'a. Suitable for machines no more than 10 mpix, it is useless to think of using it on 24 mpix APS machines, there are around newer optics (type 18-55) and much better. vote 7
Opinion:I do not like zooms but this lens has been with me for a long time, I mistreated it and now I would like to rearrange it. as a first zoom is great, useful the 35mm macro function for portraits very close to the subject. Of all the lenses I have is also the only one that gave me problems, and probably the cost will no longer be worth the repair. but if you find it in very good condition and you lack a zoom it can be a good idea. but given the low cost of fixed lenses of excellent quality, I recommend getting used to landlines. If you go out with the bag it is worth taking a couple if instead you go out only with the car will be much lighter and less invasive.
