Nikon 24-120mm review

Review Photokina 2010 - For the full frame Nikon digital SLR camera owners, this is an interesting time. With the introduction of the new Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G ED VR zoom lens, we are ready for the 3rd Nikon lens for FX cameras. The Nikon 24-120mm lens with a fixed f/4 aperture could just become very popular. The wide angle of 24mm with light tele is ideal for street-, and press photography, but will also appeal to the enthusiastic amateur photographer. The 5x zoom range is ideal for landscapes or small spaces and the tele will also suffice to shoot a nice portrait. Additionally, the fixed F-stop across the entire range is ideal.

The new Nikon AF-S 24-120mm lens has a built-in stabilizer (VR) of the second generation. Nikon’s VR system has two different settings, active and normal. The normal setting is hand-held shooting, while the active setting is especially aimed at eliminating mechanical frequencies. For example, for shooting from the car. An extra advantage is that the viewfinder appears calmer and facilitates composition and focusing accurately.

The integration of a so-called Silent Wave Motor (SWM) is also very pleasant, which makes it possible to shoot in circumstances where any extra noise needs to be prevented. The way in which Nikon has placed the focusing for manual focus or zooming in on the zoom dial allows for an easy intuitive control. It offers a pleasant experience where you ascertain fairly quickly that the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm can be controlled blindly.

The Nikon 24-120mm seems to me to be an ideal lens for daily photography. The new Nikon lens will shortly be tested thoroughly in the DIWA Lab for technical aspects and as soon as we have the opportunity, we will thoroughly test this lens in practice. As soon as the test results are ready, an in-depth Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G ED VR lens review will be published.
