Nikon 24-70mm f2.8

One of Nikon’s latest and most eagerly anticipated lenses is the new AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mmf/2.8G ED . This baby is built like a tank and employs Nikon’s latest Nano Crystal coating to reduce flare and ghosting and deliver truly professional quality results. Early reviews indicate that this is one of the best lenses yet from Nikon, something its $1,699 (US) price tag can certainly attest to.
