Is it worth trading up to the nikon 24-70 2.8?
It's a decision to be thought seriously, because they are really different lenses.
- 28-70 has a "gentle" rendition. Little microcontrast, little contrast, good sharpness already wide open. Images never "pop", but they are wonderful on people, it just works magic.
Minus: it suffers from heavy CA in the wrong conditions... really hard. You can clean it, but it'll surprise you!
- 24-70 has a completely different rendition. Ultra contrasty, and super sharp from wide open (short distances). Seems like a wonderful lens, but with people, it really screams "digital" to me, and I don't like it.
So, it depends on what you really need/wish. I sold my 24-70 and shoot now with a 28-70. But to each his own
