Paul Carroll has just posted a full review of the new released AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR Lens (Amazon| Adorama| B&H| eBay) at the DxOMark. With an overall DxOMark score of 28 points, tested on the 36Mp Nikon D810, this standard zooms lens ranks in 3rd place behind its predecessor, the 29 points Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G and the third-party 31 points Tamron SP 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC USD lens.
“Disappointing score!” conclusions from DxOMark “what seems to be a complete redesign of the optical system has made an already bulky lens even bigger and heavier, which is a serious consideration if you’re looking for an all-in-one lens to carry around a lot. At $2,397, it’s pretty expensive, too — in fact, $600 more than the original G-type version and a whopping $1,100 over the Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC USD third-party equivalent…We’ve seen from its DxOMark scores, this disappointingly isn’t the case. Overall sharpness is down compared to its predecessor and slightly worse at the critical setting of f/2.8. While chromatic aberration has been improved slightly, it’s still far from good at the wider focal lengths.”
