Good All Purpose Photograph for DSLRs

Pros: Works well outdoors for all purpose photograph which with my D90 & D7000.(light travel lesns and have a tach sharp, fast auto-focus)this is a great lens for the price and effective quality of the mid-wide telephoto 3.5x zoom lens with f/2.8 maximum aperture at 24mm focal length (have better boken). Cons: Poor in low light stooting-hard to auto-focus if you use; A.S.P.(without flashlight) This lens is for FX format (Full-Frame)so, for DX format may not that flawless of the pictures and the Macro is only from 35mm up. Summary; I may exchange or add a 16-85mm VR DX to better fit in my DX camera and or may wait for a new generation of D800 for test this lens?

Its an okay lens

I recently went on an east cost trip and brought this as my walk-around lens. Most of my pictures are sharp but a lot of them were out of focus. Not bad but a slight blur to them. Used it on DX camera and wished I had brought along my 17-55mm when it came to wide angle shots.

Its a fun Lense

By

I have been wanting a mid-range lense and this one has macro and also shoots normal. It switches back and forth easily and I have loved the results. I enjoy photographing flowers and the photos have been wonderful

Great all around travel lens. Good feel and not too heavy. The refurbished program and buying an extend warranty really make this a good buy.

I have just began to use this lens and it works great. It is now the lens that is always on my camera, easy to use, sharp. Switching to marco is easy to do. It is a heavy lens, heaviest one I own, due to the great build.

Great all around lens.

By

Been using this lens for many years. All the way back to my N70 film camera. Fast lens with decent zoom. Wish it would zoom a bit more than the 85mm. I bought this over the 24-120mm since it was faster and back in the film days you needed the extra speed for lower light conditions. I wouldn't say that this is an extremely sharp lens but it's decent enough. If you're doing portraits do you really need to see every single pore on someones face? When shooting at 24mm, I noticed that you have to be careful about vignetting especially if you shoot at a wider aperture. Don't think about stacking filters at wider aperture. When moving to a D700, vignetting was even worse and I had to even get thinner filters to prevent vignetting. Macro capability is nice to have. For a screw type lens it focuses pretty fast.

Great all around lens.

Great lens I have been using for 12 years. Sharp and fast. Can be challenging because of the lack of the VR. Beautiful lens overall.

Good travel lens, but vignetting can be an issue

By

This was my go to lens for over 10 years. On my F100 it performed beautifully. I never considered leaving it behind, indeed sometime it was the only lens that I would bring on my frequent travels. It was fast enough, not too conspicuous and met my needs most of the time. Even when I switched to DX format, it was mounted on my camera 80% of the time. On my D700 I noticed vignetting, made worse when a filter was attached, thicker polarizers should be avoided or consider a newer thin polarizer.

great lens

By

i have run extensive test in all types of situations on a d600. more costly lenses don't preform as well.this lens works fine in macro,you just have to remember to zoom the lens beyond 35mm for it to switch modes. since i got the lens i haven't had a reason to remove it.great lens and i have no complaints at all.some may consider it heavy,after shooting weddings with a RB 67 pro s and metz battery pack nothing is heavy.
