Nikon 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR

2145NCP_180
Review Date: Aug 3, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $350.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp, light, VR works wonderfull, versatility, fast focus
Cons:
Filtersize (72 mm)

For the record: it's manufactured in Japan and I bought this glass second hand.

My first step into the world of VR and I must admit it's a very decent performer on both D100 and D1X. Pictures look very sharp when printed although not as sharp as primes (1.4 50mm).

After using it for a while I can say this lens has become my main-lens on my D1X for 90% of my shots - with and without flash.

Ok, it's not build-like-a-tank like the 70-200 VRII but since I am very carefull with my equipment and will not go to battlefields for PJ-work I think I can live with that Wink

I can recommend this lens to anyone!

Pros: Great picture quality (especially in NEF), low noise, easy learning curve, Nikon lay-out, light weight
Cons:
Flimsy CF-card door, small burst-mode buffer, USB 1.0 instead of Firewire

It's just a dream come true: great picture quality, Nikon-built, lay out is very similar to other Nikon camera's...... it's just like shooting with my old F90X on Velvia! The main difference is that you can easily correct (in NEF-format), review and post-proces your pics at home to make them exactly the way you want them to be ... and bring them to your favourite printshop for some excellent copies!
