Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Lens

Is the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED AF-S standard zoom lens for you and me? Naah, probably not. At $2100 this is way beyond most enthusiasts’ budget. But let’s ogle this one.

This constant-aperture lens is for exacting professional Nikon shooters, says PopPhoto.com who has a review of this glass. It’s bright, rugged, and optically flawless.

The lens features Nikon’s latest generation of optical artillery, including extra-low-dispersion and precision-molded aspheric elements. It promises better control of chromatic aberration and linear distortion, especially at wider apertures and focal lengths. (One big benefit for landscape and architecture photographers: horizon lines that are edge-to-edge sharp and only minimally curved.)

“With its rugged construction, faultless optics, and bright f/2.8 aperture, this lens should exert an irresistible appeal to any pro photojournalist or event photographer who is physically and financially able to carry it,” concludes reviewer Julia Silber.
