24-70mm f/2.8

Last week I finally took delivery of a Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. One of the best fastest professional lenses in the Nikkor series, with 20 elements in 16 groups (including 2 ED glass, 1 aspherical ED glass, 3 aspherical lens and 1 HRI lens elements; lens elements with Nano Crystal Coat and fluorine coat) And I’m not geeky enough to understand all that!

I got it because basically it’s a great all round fast lens, in the focal lengths I mostly use for both work and my own little side projects, and although being a 24-70mm and overlaps with my workhorse of a 16-35mm f/4 lens, and 50mm f/1.8 lens; I can see plenty of use for both lenses in my arsenal of Glass.

While I know a lot of photographers hate it when people say, “if I had a camera as good as yours I could take good pictures too”, we can not deny that good glass on the front of our camera is a benefit to our art.
