The new Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8 E ED VR lens (Amazon | B&H Photo Video | Adorama) was announced last week, and will be shipping on August 27th, 2015. First review of this new standard zoom lens now out at Fotoinfo. They posted full review of this lens on their website, includes some sample images, sharpness test and more.
The lens is large. All new technology installed in the lens are welcomed, in particular, a great and incredibly fast autofocus system, as well as excellent image stabilization system. The picture quality is excellent, especially the sharpness is excellent at almost all focal lengths and only slightly decrease at 70mm.
Vignetting could have been less pronounced at open apertures, optical image distortion is also well controlled for zoom lens with such range (24-70mm). Surprisingly slightly worse sharpness in close-ups, but this lens is anyway not constructed for use in macro photography.
