Great lens for weddings and special events!

I just used it last weekend for a wedding on my D700. This lens is a wedding photographer's dream! All of the formals came out tack sharp hand holding the camera. In the past I had to use a tripod to get the same results. I was also able to shoot as slow as 1/15 sec and get tack sharp pictures of stationary objects. Bokeh is decent at 100-120mm if you want to do impromptu portraits. During the first dance I got a nice wide angle shot at 24mm, zoomed in to 45-60mm for a closer full length shot...

This is a wonderful lens for shooting weddings and special events. It will be a standard part of my wedding gear bag for a long time to come.

Focus rings in the wrong place !

The lens got it's one star rating for one reason only, that for me, the focus ring being closest to the camera body and in constant contact with my hand as I held the camera, made me feel like it could be moved in the heat of battle and produce out of focus shots. I would have kept the lens and up'ed the rating if the manual focus ring was defeatable.

Long term quality

This lens lives on my D800E. I have 18 FX lenses, and it's my favorite.

My go-to lens

By

Ever since I purchased my FX camera, I have been looking for a lens with this focal length and speed. I'm putting it through its paces and enjoying the experience. I own several specialty lenses, but I' m finding that this lens stays on the camera more than any of the others. I call this lens my go-to lens.

Great glass

By

This is a great all around lens to carry on trips and nature walks with a fast f/4 will let you takes excellent quality photos. I have no regrets. The colour, contrast, focussing speed, and sharpness of the 24-120 f4 are all very impressive.

Vs 24-105L this one crushes!

By

I just switched from Canon 24-105L. You will not be sorry. This lens is just outstanding. I have done many types of settings including flash, indoor, outdoor, portrait, etc. It's just fantastic.

Ultimate Nikon Landscape Zoom Lens

By

After visiting numerous National Parks in the United States, this lens has the best combination of focal lengths and optical quality for my landscape needs. Below is a photo taken with this lens and a Nikon D800 camera body at 6:18 AM in Death Valley National Park in California. The shutter speed is 1/4 of a second (on a tripod), the aperture is f/8, the focal length is 24mm, the ISO is 100, the exposure mode is manual, and the white balance is auto.

My Standard - Hard to Take Off

By

While this may not be the sharpest lens in Nikon's bag. it has performed wonderfully as the standard lens on my D300 and D800, and it will reclaim that position on my D810 following the theft of my D800. I have numerous prime lenses (50mm 1.8G; 85mm 1.8G; 105mm micro 2.8G among them), but for pure flexibility and the confidence of knowing I'll get the perfect shot regardless of the distance, this is my lens. My last one was stolen along with my D800, and the new one has a firmer "turn feel" (not a technical term), and I'm hoping it remains so to prevent the lens involuntarily lengthening as it hangs on my shoulder.

I really wanted to like this lens….

By

I wanted a mid zoom lens that was reasonably light, compact with good color and contrast and most of all SHARP to use on my Nikon D 610 (full frame). I found this lens to be SOFT in most lighting conditions, especially in bright, contrasty light. It is not compact nor is it particularly light weight. I could get over that if it was sharp. I took a lot of photographs in all different lighting conditions and at different settings hoping to salvage this purchase. Not going to happen. Although I often use prime lenses I also own and love the 70-200 f4. FYI- there is no comparison between these two lenses. This lens goes back ASAP.

Works well

Great for a walk around lens and range is perfect when just out for the day. Behaved very well with a flash. Heavy and on-line reviews did not any problem but they can be worked around.

Great walk around lens

By

Great for travel and covers the bases from 24mm- 120mm and beyond when coupled with the Nikon D300 and use with the full frame D700. I read all the reviews and found this lens to be sharp and with good color rendition. As stated by most it is not the best for architecture subjests. Cons: I did not find the VR as helpful as I would have liked, and had to use a tripod (without the VR engaged)to get tack sharp photos.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Cal T  Can I use a Nikon TC 1.4 with the 24-120 F4 lens?
FRANCIS D  No, it is not on the list and it is below 70mm which seems to be the cut off. If you use it it will damage your rear element.
Cal T  Francis, thanks for the quick reply. I was hoping that I could extend the range to about 160mm and still be below f5.6 for the AF function. The 28-300 has the range but not the light or the IQ. Oh well, for some reason i still can't have it all. Cal
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JOHN M  Excellent zoom. Fine resolution.
Shopper  How does the AFS 24-120 f4 compare to the new AFS 18-140? I know the first one is for full frame while the other is for smaller sensor like the D7100 that I plan to use it on.
PHILIP C  Since I have a full-frame camera, I needed a lens like the 24-120. Also it has a constant aperture, f/4. And it has been highly rated as suitable for a very high resolution camera like the D800. I have been very happy with the 24-120.
