  • Nikon 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S Nikkor

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp, light, fast
    Light build,

    I bought this lens years ago when I was shooting film. It has always delivered. I use it all the time for landscape. Not a pro piece of glass, but I find it a very useful tool in my bag.

  • Tamron 200-500mm f/5-6.3 Di LD IF SP AF

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    shoot wide open and pics are very usable.

    I have used this lens for about two years now on a D200. The images are sharp and very usable. This monstor is hand holdable in good light however I use a tripod or monopod when exceeding 300mm in focal length.
    This is a very good lens in the price range.

  • Nikon 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D AF Nikkor

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Great walk around on my D700, sharp, built well
    Macro works but clunky operation

    This is a hidden gem for the price point. Reasonably fast focus, sharp, great range, slight distortion at28mm. This is certainly not a pro lens but it holds up quite well if used properly.
