Pros: Compact and lightweight, sharp, VR, image quality, quality FF, autofocus.

Cons: Nothing relevant to the price range.

Opinion: Sober lens with very good performance, adds VR partially compensating for the variable aperture. I also have the 24-70 I series and I had the Tamron 24-70 I series, honestly in normal conditions in a blank test it is difficult to see the difference between the AFS with closed apertures. It adds to the 24-70 something more on the telephoto side that makes it useful in some situations, evidently the 24 is better at the extremes of the frame (if diaphragm), it is f / 2.8 , perhaps does not close the shadows like this, etc ... . But for general everyday use where lightness has its value or where VR is useful, the 24-85 is really effective and does not neglect image quality. Sometimes it seems to me that it enjoys a microcontrast a little higher than the 24-70 series I but I am not an expert in optics, I could not explain ... The filter diameter is 72 mm, so it is not possible to insert it in the classic triplet as a substitute for the 24-70, it serves adapter ring for filters or holders type V5 / V6 nisi. The autofocus is responsive, I use it with d3 and d810 for medium distance shots even for my son's cycling races and I'm satisfied. It does not replace the 24-70 in my kit. I'm honest: for the type of use I make of it I correct blissfully and without any problem in lightroom the defects such as distortion, vignetting, etc that the lens could have so I do not consider them proper; the fringing and ghosting I did not notice them. I would say excellent lens for what it costs, someone who does not need a 24-70 2.8 could do without the latter. The only flaw, the construction provides that by varying the focal length the lens extends to the outside with a double cam system that honestly does not make me crazy on any lens ... But it is not a problem given the very high overall quality that this lens offers.

Pros: Lightweight, affordable cost, precise and silent autofocus

Cons: Not as sharp as a fixed lens, maximum aperture not great

Opinion: I exhume these reviews to express a substantially positive opinion on this perspective. I would say that the performance is good, I need it when I do not need quality at the top but still more than decent as this lens provides. Plus it's stabilized, so it should save me when I can't raise the ISO above 400/800 and the shutter speeds get a little longer. It is a lens that on a REFLEX with a resolution higher than 15-16 Mpixels has some limitations, but it is still a non-pro zoom, so you can not expect who knows what performance, although I do not dare to complain at all. Found used in excellent condition at a price I would say good, even if the hood was missing.

Pros: Lightweight, sharp, stabilization

Cons: Tropicalization and hood

Opinion: Very interesting lens I used it for a review and kept it for a year. In my hand it looks like a feather I carried apple tree with me when I went out with the 200-500mm and in case I wanted to do some landscape or portrait I used it despite obviously not a 2.8 but to travel lighter apple I carried. It has a superb sharpness and is difficult to match in zooms of this type. I noticed that a lot of dust enters inside, this lens would have really needed tropicalization. I had to replace the hood because it was ridiculous too small like not having it on. Being a light and small lens the Stabilizer worked wonders, I managed to shoot without a tripod up to 1/6s. I absolutely recommend it for those who want to travel light and still fill the Classic focal range.

Pros: good sharpness, size, smooth ring, construction in general, pasty yield

Cons: filters of 72, lampshed a little too light..

Opinion: it is a lens that I use on nikon d700 and rhymes the range of "classic" focals from panoramas to portraits. it's basically an f.4 so quite bright. It has the rendering of the g series and very beautiful colors. The construction is professional with the metal barrel and a zoom ring with bows. at f 5.6 is great. Also better than the 24 120 especially at 85 mm in which it makes excellent if you have to make a portrait on the fly. It also seems to me a hair better than the 16-85 for apsc which still has a superb overall sharpness and hardly equals in zooms. It mounts filters from 72 but I just found an Amazon discount for an nd16 filter at 22 euros so I fixed :) recommended and small in size.

Pros: Sharpness, color rendering, distortion control, flare resistance, lightness, small footprint, well-exploitable focal excursion on FF, excellent zoom ring rotation, second-hand price, good construction.

Cons: Bulky light, slightly less sharp than a fixed, but it is logical that this is the case, and then the differences are minimal.

Opinion: Purchased used on Rebuy, I use it on the D610, and I am satisfied. I used a couple of fixes, but I don't regret that; it is the first time that a zoom satisfies me like a fixed, taking into account the comfort and versatility of the former against the optical superiority of the second. Avoiding replacing the lens is a great advantage.
