Nano Crystal Coat
Further reduces ghosting and interior flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity.

3 Aspherical Lens Elements
Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration, even when shooting at the widest available aperture.

Great walk-around lens. I can't find anything bad to say about this lens. The constant aperture is a must have and the VR is terrific. If you buy this lens you will not be disappointed. Note to Nikon: 28 to 150mm would be a better range. August 17, 2015
Most Useful Zoom I have been using this lens for the last two years with my D700 mostly for landscape or family photos. it turned out to be an excellent all purpose lens. It has good autofocus speed and is flawless across the frame at all focal lengths and apertures. Additionally, it exhibits wonderful contrast and surprisingly pleasing bokeh. Very happy with the purchase, great job Nikon. January 9, 2015
General purpose FX zoom This is the second 24-120 zoom that I have purchased. The first version I bought did not have VR and I used it extensively when travelling and taking landscapes, etc, on my Nikon film cameras (FM2N, F100, F5, F6's). The lens was sharp and very robustly made. When I bought a D3 I upgraded to the 24-120mm f/4 ED VR version. This newer lens is just as sharp and has the added advantage of VR, which is particularly useful when photographing subjects in low light without a tripod, etc. The lens is robustly constructed and is pretty compact. I often use the lens on my D3 when I do not want to carry a bag full of lenses around. The 24mm focal length is really good for landscapes, etc., whilst the top end of 120mm is good for portraits, etc. All in all a really versatile lens. January 11, 2014
Superb general purpose lens I bought this lens as a replacement for the kit lens that came with my Nikon D600. The fixed aperture, VR II, internal focus and excellent lens coatings make this wide angle to medium telephoto lens a great all around choice for my general purpose "go to" unit. It is solid without being overly heavy and it balances well. The zoom range covers a bigger range for normal shots than the more common 24-70mm size. It is a professional class lens without the high cost and excessive weight of going to the Nikon f2.8. I also purchased the new Nikon 70-200mm f4 zoom and together this combo provides everything I need for tack sharp images at an affordable price. No regrets! February 3, 2013
Long term quality This lens lives on my D800E. I have 18 FX lenses, and it's my favorite. June 21, 2015
