  • Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G IF-ED AF-S Nikkor

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    fast focus, sharp, build quality, design, look...

    It is great lens, before buying it I'm lookin for sharpest lens and I'm find it... Using it on Nikon d300, and sample full size images you can see on my portfolio... order images by date.

    In comparation with nikon 80-200 2.8 there is lot more shapness in images and much, much bether contol of purple fringe at lower f stops...

    Another fullsize sample...
    Image is taken in 14bit raw, and later exported in one at sharpnes 2 and anoter on sharpness 9... Later put together in two layers in photoshop... sharpen image is on eyes and hair... gread sample of sharpness...

    iso 100

    two sb800 and softboxes... ezybox

    And another sample... with no any postproduction...only converted raw
    sharpness, 6 (9 max), satration 0,

    f2.8, iso 100, 1/250.... two sb800 flashes with softboxes

    This is my story... hope it will help someone...
