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

The Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED AF-S NIKKOR is a new standard zoom lens that should replace its 28-70 f/2.8 sibling, similar to Canon’s 24-70 L. Compact construction reminds us of the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 and the Tamron 17-50 f2/.8.

Features are listed as:

  • 24-70mm zoom range (DX equivalent: 36-105mm).
  • Nano Crystal coat reduces ghost and flare.
  • Slim, durable and lightweight barrel.
  • SWM (Silent Wave Motor) for whisper quiet and fast autofocus.
  • ED glass to minimize chromatic aberration.
  • Closest focusing distance: 0.38 m (at 50 mm).
  • Rubber mount seal.
  • Instant manual focus override (M/A).
  • Detachable hood and soft pouch CL-M3 included.

With this new Nikkor offering, Nikon shooters now have a 24-70 standard zoom, an advantage that only Canon used to have.
