Upload & Sell: On
I was looking at the recent rebates on some of the Nikon lenses and was wondering if the 24-120 was worth the price after the big rebate. The lens seems to get mixed reviews and if you own it what are your thoughts?? I am mainly concerned about sharpness and AF. Thanks.
I don't own it, so maybe my thoughts are worthless. Regardless, when I was doing walk-around type shooting, I loved the old, much maligned, version of the 24-120. I don't do walk-around stuff any more, but I am still very tempted to buy this lens, especially now with the big rebate. For me, it's just a real nice FL range, with pretty good IQ. If you want the best IQ, the 24-70 is the ticket, which is what I generally use now.
If you're living on SSI, there's a lot of walk-around type stuff there, or at least there used to be. I used to do a lot of partying out there, in my younger, wilder days. It certainly has much better photo ops than in Brunswick, IMO.
Regardless, if you don't want the 24-70 or one of the truly super zooms, I'd think that the 24-120 f/4 would be a good alternative. If you find that you really don't like it, you shouldn't lose much money selling it.
