We summarize the scores and analyses of multi-purpose zoom lenses in this second part of our review of the best lenses for the Nikon D5. More versatile than primes, zoom lenses are often a more convenient choice for shooting in fast-paced environments when you don’t always have time to switch lenses. Although primes generally deliver better image quality, with noticeably improved edge sharpness and transmission, zoom performance has steadily improved, and now some come close to rivalling the performance of a prime.
The Tokina AT-X 24-70mm f/2.8 PRO FX (Tokina 24-70mm f/2.8) is a wide-angle to short telephoto, fast-aperture standard zoom for use on full-frame Canon or Nikon DSLRs. Great lens metric scores from Tokina’s latest affordable, pro-grade, standard zoom for Nikon full-frame DSLRs.
Launched back in August 2015, but only recently available due to unexpected shipping delays, the new AF-S Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR (Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8E) is an updated version of Nikon’s FX-mount fast-aperture standard zoom.
The Nikon D750 is an affordable 24.3Mp full-frame DSLR with attractive-looking specs for both the enthusiast and the professional photographer. It’s capable of producing outstanding pictures, but the quality of the lens used has a bearing on image quality. We’ve analyzed the performance of 105 lenses on the Nikon D750, and in part one we bring you an analysis of the top three zoom lenses in six different categories.
Following on from the lens recommendations for the earlier full-frame Nikon D600, we’ve now had the opportunity to assess a wide range lenses with that model’s replacement, the 24-Mpix D610. We’ve analyzed a total of 95 Nikkor and third-party prime and zoom models with the D610 to assess image quality, and we’ve come across some unexpected results. Read onto find out more about that and which lenses perform best when paired with the camera.
This is the second part of our lens recommendations for the Nikon D7100 where we’ve analyzed nearly 60 Nikkor and third-party standard and portrait prime and zoom models to assess their optical quality. Read onto find out which of these lenses are the best performers when paired with Nikon’s ultra-high resolution 24-Mpix APS-C format semi-pro model.
Following on from our series of selecting the best lenses for the Nikon D800 with its potential for massively detailed images from the 36Mpix sensor, we’ve now turned our attention to that camera’s younger sibling, the 24Mpix D600.
Launched in February 2012 the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD is a ‘fast’ standard zoom available in Nikon, Sony and Canon lens mounts. On full frame DSLRs its wide-angle through to short telephoto focal range is ideal for general use photography, and featuring Tamron’s VC image stabilisation system, as well as a fixed f/2.8 maximum aperture, its low-light credentials are pretty hot, too.
Introduced in 2007 alongside the AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED and Nikon’s first full-frame DSLR – the 12-megapixel Nikon D3 – this lens was a first of its kind and set new standards for image quality for ultra-wide angle lenses. How does this lens perform on demanding high-resolution bodies, such as the 36-MPix Nikon D800? DxOMark has the answer.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED bad Chr aberration results
Nikon explained to me that the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED was made of a very special glass to reduce Chr. aberration to a minimum. Any idea why the Chr. aberration is especially bad with this lens?
After using this lens for a while I noticed the Chromatic aberration is specifically bad with this lens. Opening the raw files with Adobe camera raw i get easily visible green shadows on the right of dark objects and red ones on the left.
