The 24-70 contains two extra low disperson elements and Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coating with a Silent Wave Motor for high speed autofcusing. The lens can focus as close as 15 inches.
It took a bit of time for this lens to grow on me – not because it isn’t great, it is great. But its predecessor, the 28-70 f/2.8 was such an excellent lens that I simply took the 24-70 for granted: a 28-70 with AF-S and a few extra mm on the wide end. But from an image quality point-of-view is better in every way, just subtly so. The autofocus is clearly quicker. Flare control and chromatic aberration are controlled better in the 24-70. The 28-70 was supremely sharp for a zoom, as is the 24-70, but I have to give props to Nikon: usually making a zoom range longer interferes with sharpness and that’s certainly not the case here. If anything the 24-70 is a bit sharper.
Unfortunately as I’ve used the lens more and more, one thing really irritates me: the zoom ring. The inner and outer barrels seem to catch on each other and the zoom mechanism at the same time feels loose and rough. Its a little thing, but in a lens of this price its a little thing that bothers me.
