Outstanding multi-pupose lens. This is an excellent general purpose lens and it THE lens I keep on my D800 body and which I use for nearly all of my work. Rather than repeat the many comments about its virtues that everyone else is already posting, and which I agree with, I thought instead to explain what I use it for and why I find this lens so useful, in the hopes that this information might be more useful to anyone considering purchasing this lens. The sort of work I shoot include pinups, usually shot in a small studio, boudoir images, usually shot on location in a client’s home, food photos, small to medium product photos, catalog photos, and some architectural photos, with a limited amount of wedding and event photography. I found that the focal range of this lens is just about right for all of the above work, except for weddings where I find it desirable to have a second body at hand with a longer lens for some shots. Excepting this, I have found that a maximum 70mm focal length is all that’s needed, and the real strength of this lens for me, is the ability to zoom out when working in tight spaces such as a client’s home. I If you can afford this lens, and if you shoot alot in the 24-70 focal range, you will not regret purchasing this piece of glass. July 4, 2012
The Most Useful Lens Of all the lenses that I own this amazing lens get the most usage. Hence, it lives on my camera 70% of the time. It's focal length is perfect for all types of photography which yields itself in produces stunning photos. You will kick yourself for not having it when you bought your DSLR on day one. In short, hit the buy button! July 10, 2012
Essential for anyone getting paid for photography This lens is fantastic. The only downside I can think of is that it is a bit heavy, but for the quality of the pictures, it is absolutely worth it. All the pictures are sharp and the color is spot on. The auto-focus is extremely fast and precise, and the M/A mode is wonderful. The Nano Crystal Coat works really well (that is what the "N" means on the lens). I recommend this to anyone that gets paid for their photography. If photography is your profession, this lens, as well as any f/2.8 "N" series lens, will increase the quality of your pictures so you can charge more for noticeable improvement. In that regards, it is worth every penny. May 12, 2012
Very Sharp Bought this lens about a year ago and since then it never failed me. Autofocus is fast, silent and accurate. Image quality is very sharp like super sharp. This is the lens that I will always bring wherever I go. May 9, 2012
LOVE IT ! 1 year ago I bought 85mm 1.4f for portrait work. It's fantastic glass BUT - this 24 - 70mm f2.8 it's pretty close and more flexible lens. Optical and build quality ***** five star ! It make me thinking to seal my 85mm 1.4f. Only reason to keep 85mm now is size. It's very light compare to 24-70. However from time I screw 24-70 to my body it's non stop there because its just perfect for most of situations and work... It's fantastic glass. May 3, 2012
