The Nikon 24-70mm F2.8 is Nikon's best midrange zoom lens ever, but that's estimated since it's also Nikon's newest and most expensive ever. With the latest embodiment of Nikon's midrange zoom, the Nikon 24-70mm F2.8G AF-S Nikkor ED Lens features a broader range, Nano Crystal Coating, and a built-in AF motor. What's more, we see an entirely fresh optical design that promises all the features you'd expect from a 21st-century pro f/2.8 zoom.
Ergonomically, the Nikon Nikkors 24-70mm F2.8G AF-S ED Lens is a gorgeous lens to use, and a nice improvement over the fatter Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 that it replaced. Generally, the lens barrel is pretty slim, tapering from the front part down to the lens element in such a way that these midranges zoom is very easy to balance and use. Nikon earned a status of manufacturing lenses over the decades with a superior than regular builds quality and the AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED does surely deliver here.
In fact it is a specialized grade zoom lens with super integrated coating that minimizes indication in wider wavelength range to make sure greater colour balance and reproduction.Its inner tube extends significantly when zooming towards the wide end of the zoom range and a little bit towards 70mm. The shortest physical length is reached around the 50mm setting. This may sound strange but it is actually quite typical for fast Nikon (and Canon) standard zooms. Its petal shaped hood can be attached to the outer lens barrel thus providing a near-optimal protection at all focal length. The physical length with attached hood is constant. Due to its IF (internal focusing) design the front element does not rotate so using a polarizer is no problem (unless you attach the lens hood). Similar to modern Nikon Lenses Nikon Nikkors 24-70mm F2.8G AF-S ED Lens features a silent-wave (ultrasonic) AF motor providing extremely fast and near-silent AF operations. The AF precision of the tested sample was excellent. Nikon Nikkor 24-70mm F2.8G AF-S ED Lens has 15 elements in 11 groups (with 3 ED glass elements, 3 aspherical lenses and one Nano crystal coated) lens construction that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections and aberration (Chromatic and Spherical)
It has a one stop larger aperture than kit-zooms which can produce a shallower depth of field and lets you isolate your subject a little more. Nikon Nikkor 24-70mm F2.8G AF-S ED Lens is very easy to use and has exemplary optics, except for the strong, but easy to correct, distortion at 24mm. It's the easiest-to-use professional midrange zoom ever offered by Nikon. Simply put, this zoom focuses as quickly and accurately as any zoom. There is no way to disable the always-active MF ring. This is important if you're shooting all day. Small frustration turns into big pains quick.
