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

2145NCP_180
Review Date: Apr 28, 2008 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 5 

 
Pros: It would be ultimate DX lens if it would be better. There is no comparable range so it is probably best allround DX lens if you need that extra reach (over 85mm) with yet worse quality. The comparable alt lenses including 50-150 Sigma are worse.
Cons:
Price/performance bad. Softer than 24-85 or all others. At 120mm even softer than 55-200 VR at 120mm

I bought this lens to just try because there is no closer "80-200 replacement for DX" in Nikon offering. I was very disappointed and send it to Nikon check if it was intended to be like that.
It came back saying it is indeed ok, so i sold it the day later.

VR really works but lens is too soft to be for any benefit.
If you need some "so so" lens for backup camera, family trips when big lenses gotta stay at home, get 18-200 instead.

Nikon, give us 50-150 lens with 80-200 quality!
