Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120MM F/4G ED VR Review
Whether you want to capture the perfect landscape, or you’d like to shoot some great images of a friend’s wedding, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120MM F/4G ED VR is a lens that shouldn’t miss from your kit. Unlike other lens, this one is extremely versatile and it can prove useful in more than a handful of situations. FX-format cameras from Nikon are the ones for which the lens is primarily designed, but you can also use it on DX-format cameras. If you prefer the latter option, you will enjoy an increase in the focal length by 1.5x, ideal for longer range shots.
The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120MM F/4G ED VR is designed to minimize chromatic aberrations and not only. Inside the lens there are two ED elements, which contribute to almost 0 chromatic aberrations, whereas there are also three aspherical elements. These are added in order to prevent various aberrations from occurring when you take a shot. The widest aperture settings won’t pose a problem for these elements, so you can capture photos using such a preset without worrying about various aberrations that would otherwise be present. Two coatings are also added on the lens elements in order for flare to be reduced, while image clarity is enhanced.
The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120MM F/4G ED VR has internal focus available, and the length of the lens itself won’t be affected while you alter the focus. Autofocus is extremely quiet, so even if you decide to record video content with your camera, you won’t have any interference issues. This is due to the Nikon Silent Wave Motor, designed to output almost no noise at all. Image stabilization features are also built into the lens, in order to give you crisp images at all times. The 9-blade diaphragm of the lens should also be something to look forward to, especially if you care about bokeh. Images shot with the aid of this lens will have richer and more natural-looking bokeh.
You should know the lens is not designed to be weatherproof, so you should keep it away when bad weather is coming. However, the lens mount is surrounded by a rubber seal that should keep dust away when you want to shoot outside. You can use various f settings when working with the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120MM F/4G ED VR, starting with the f/4 one. You can go all the way up to f/22, and under normal circumstances, there shouldn’t be any noticeable difference regarding the sharpness of the image. However, the best results might be encountered around the f/8 value.
The compatibility that we mentioned earlier in the review might feel abstract, so you should know more about it. You can use the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120MM F/4G ED VR on high-end DSLR cameras, but it can also work with 1980s cameras. However, there are certain limitations that you should research in-depth with respect to your camera in order to know exactly what works, what won’t work and what are some workarounds.
