Pros: Quality

Cons: Price from new 3,750,000 l.a. high, heaviness.

Opinion: It's a lens to make a scene, to those who have it bigger. Heavy and so he often stayed home. I've done a thousand photos in all of it,. Sold after 10 years and put back about 1000 euros. So it cost me a euro per picture. At 28mm it didn't shine but at 70mm it wasn't bad. It is I think the only af-s that also had the diaframmma. On a constructive level, it was certainly not an Ai-s.

Pros: Sharpness, Chromatic Yield, Robustness, AF...

Cons: Purple halos in some circumstances

Opinion: I've had this lens for over a year, I've been using it on the D800 and now on the Z6. I found it used at a more than advantageous price, in perfect conditions and the autofocus engine never gave the slightest problem. The highlight is sharpness, at all focal points and also at TA. It's an old-fashioned optics, one that gives you the feeling of having "something big" in your hands. And so it is! it's huge and heavy, but it gives you a feeling of the highest quality. The only "flaws" are the absence of VR (which in my case is not a problem, since the Z6 stabilizes via the sensor) and the purple halos when shooting in the backlight, but it is nothing dramatic. I can only recommend it to anyone, in my personal opinion it is a MUST HAVE of every kit.

Pros: ... What about... has an extra gear.

Cons: It's huge, heavy but it gives you an exhilarating feeling in your hands

Opinion: Purchased to have a lens brighter than 4 with an indisputable quality. It seems impossible but the concept of sharpness without too much contrast is possible. It looks a lot more natural than the yet great 24-120 vr! The shadows are definitely more open and this gives an impression of less sharpness but it is not so. The details are there but there is a less "digital" tonal passage. With a small mask of sharpness are indistinguishable to TA, better the old man if a wire closed; especially when evaluated throughout the frame. At TA it is softer than the 24-120 vr but if you close it at 4-4.5 it becomes sharper than the competitor in the center. At the edges is better. The autofocus is very fast to be a lens that is 15 years old but you have to give it the fine calibration to get the best. I quietly support the 36 Mpix of the D800E indeed , if you use it at 24 you do not appreciate it for what it can give. It is a very particular lens and I am no longer surprised by those who said (I do not remember) that you should have both 28-70 and 24-70 to use if necessary... At TA the edges of the blacks pull out a small purple halo. already disappears with a closing diaphragm. Bought used for less than 500 euros, if the autofocus does not make jokes does not seem good. No by chance it cost a fortune... like the son of the other!!

Pros: Optics valid in all respects

Cons: A little weight... but on the other hand the brightness and the build quality have a price to pay. The engine can give you problems.

Opinion: I have been using this lens for many years and bought it to replace a Nikon AF-D 35-70 f 2.8 and in the end also an Angenieux af 28-70 F 2.6. Personally, in many cases, I prefer its colors to those of the AF-S 24-70 f 2.8 that I have but also because of the greater weight I carry only when I think that the focal of 28 may be short. A couple of years ago I had to make him replace the engine, (in a service center in Bologna: spending 300 euros and two years of warranty) that began to stop during the focus, and now goes even better than it had always gone previously. If found used and in good condition... recommend this optics as a very good purchase. Usually, these days, if very well put and with packing, here in the area is around 750 euros... price that falls considerably if it brings signs due to use and missing the packaging and the lens hood. Then it also depends on how much the offer... since there are long periods in which there are not for sale. Take into account that most of the optical stipulations comes from the professional world so it has not been purchased to make 10 photos per year but for intensive working... which also involves long trips in the car and therefore many gasping .

Pros: Sensational sharpness at all focal-return of real colors-used price.

Cons: First-generation AFS engine that first whistles and then plant you. -Weight and dimensions really disproportionate.

Opinion: I think it's one of the best zoom lenses designed by Nikon in this focal range. In some respects optically superior to the latest-generation 24-70: warm colors and sharpness at the highest levels at all focal lengths. A f 5.6 reaches its maximum of sharpness (those who measured it detected just under 4000 l/MM. Balanced and never exaggerated contrast. A real pleasure to use it. Solid and heavy as a boulder. Sore point the AFS engine: first start whistling and then you'll plant in the lurch. Cost of repair just over 300 euros. The price of the used varies according to the state: with engine still working and good appearance around 650/750 euros; With motor gone (use only in manual) around 300 euros. Knowing all this is worth buying? I think you do! The price paid in both cases and significantly lower than the optical and mechanical quality returned (really remarkable). With motor gone the use in manual focusing is really easy, notable are also the dimensions: grafted the hood seems to have an oak trunk in his hands. With regard to the weight (around the Kg) you have to make a little habit. Optics Born to grind photographs, not recommended for exits out door with machine and optics dangling on the neck... Unless you have the neck of M. Tyson. Then you do!
