Nikon 24-120mm f/4G ED VR AF-S Lens

There's a new review of the Nikon 24-120mm f/4G ED VR AF-S lens up at The AF-S 24-120mm f/4G ED VR lens features Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) II Image Stabilization system, Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology, Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating (SIC) for color consistency and reduced flaring, M/A Focus Mode Switch, Internal Focus, two ED elements, three aspherical lens elements and Nano Crystal Coat reduce ghosting and flare.

Here's what they had to say about this lens:

"Nikon's produced a nice kit lens for full-frame bodies, though it's not without its caveats. The lens fared quite well in our tests, for the most part - the big problem is the wide open performance at 70 and 85mm, where it's quite soft indeed when used at ƒ/4. If you don't need to shoot at ƒ/4 - and by and large, with VR and the high-ISO performance of modern Nikons, you might not need to - then it's not really an issue."

This high performance lens is perfect for photographing landscapes, portraits, interiors and weddings by offering a constant maximum aperture of f/4 to maintain exposure settings throughout the entire zoom range.
