Pros: colors and contrast, unsurpassed in the portraits set

Cons: Weight, size, AF engine

Opinion: optics that I had sold and then resumed, evaluated with the current parameters comes loser, many defects first of all a fast AF engine but that can break when it begins to whistle and scratch, then weight and size, lack of stabilizer, focal that starts from 28mm and sharpens a hair below the g zoom counterpart. Now rightly you wonder what I started doing again , well even today after so many years remains an unsurpassed zoom for set portraits, focal length 28-70 in this case suitable, the blurry and pastel colors, open shadows with soft contrasts and right sharpness, are a perfect mix that makes any complexion pleasant, ready file without banging in PP even for aged ladies. In this context is in my opinion still the king in the nikon house, vote 10

Pros: High sharpness at TA, Speed and precision AF (even with low lights), Spectacular color yield,Robbusiness and reliability at the top.

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: I have this fantastic zoom for a few years (gray version) Borrowed from a colleague I tried it by chance during a job and at the end of the evening as soon as I saw the files on the monitor I was speechless so I immediately bought one used but held very well, I tried many zooms of this range 24-70 2.8 Nikon also the VR, the Tamron G2 and the Sigma Art ,all very good lenses but none of them gave me that sense of optical quality and total yield that the 28-70 manages to give,compared with several fixed comes out with head held high ! Straconsigliato

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!!
