      You might think so, but it’s the “Elite” edition.

  • Eric Calabros

    • Spy Black

      Although I do hope it offers something more than the miserable 24-85, I’m not seeing much there that would designate it as GREAT. I’ve considered renting it from lensrentals to see how it fares as a kit lens. I think however the 24-70 Tokina is money better spent.

      • T.I.M

        Try it, it’s sharp all over (even at f/4) from 24-120mm
        and the VR works great in low light !
        That is my only zoom lens, I have 12 primes lenses so I’m picky about sharpness.

        • VanHoff

          I have the Tammy 24-70 it is superb and incredibly sharp, before the purchase I had many doubts but after testing it at all focals and f stops I can say I bet anything it can defeat your crappy 24-120 and 24-85 anyday.

          • Patrick O’Connor

            “crappy”?

            • VanHoff

              Yes, why to couple a D810 to a crappy lens when you could get best results using a tammy 24-70 or if you have extra money, which I lack of, go for the 24-70 Nikkors?

            • Patrick O’Connor

              The difference between the best lenses and good lenses, which includes both of these lenses (I’ve owned both of them), is very small. That difference could be all the difference in certain situations but it’s still small. And the Tamron 24-70 has faults of its own. I wouldn’t be throwing stones if I were you.

            • PhilK

              Well for at least T.I.M. and I, 24-70 is way too limited of a range for a walkaround lens.

              From what I can tell, the IQ of the 24-120 is not even quite as good as the old 24-105L Canon, which has been on the market for 10 years. I don’t personally need 2.8 and I certainly don’t want a monstrosity that weighs almost as much as my 400 ED-IF as a walkaround lens.

          • Scott

            Thanks for that professional perspective.

        • PhilK

          I agree with Spy that I am not particularly seeing the “greatness” you speak of with the photos you’ve posted from that lens, and the reviews on it are consistently lukewarm.

          Maybe you got a slightly better than average sample. I’d love to love that lens because that’s the range I would use as a walkaround lens – the 24-70 to me is an expensive monstrosity with an anemic focal-length range.

          • T.I.M

            Yes, I had the 24-70mm f/2.8 (2) and did not like it, 70mm is way too short for an all-in-one zoom.
            Here is a sharper image from the same lens (at 52mm 1/1000s ISO 200 D800)

            • Eledeuh

              A 1.9Mp image of dull buildings. Are you sure you really want to defend that poor 24-120 f/4 lens ?

            • PhilK

              That’s a better example, would be even better if I could see it at the original resolution. But it still seems flat-ish. Like the 10-24 Tamron DX I had for a while when I had a D300. Everything I shot through that thing seemed dull and grey.

            • T.I.M

              I’m selling theses pictures so I can’t post the 36mp size on NR.
              Why don’t you just buy the lens, try it, and return it if you don’t like it.
              I got mine brand new (from a kit) for $700 on Ebay.

            • Spy Black

              Can’t say I’m seeing much more here that I find impressive. For someone who claims to work with as many primes as you suggest, I can’t see what’s impressing you here.

            • T.I.M

              picture size is reduced to 1080×1920

            • Spy Black

              Yes, but even at this resolution you can see it’s just not that impressive, especially at the edges. What aperture was this at?

            • T.I.M

              Ok, let me take a picture of my famous wine bottle at high resolution, I’ll be back…

            • T.I.M

              1/250s SB900 D800 f/5.6 ISO 200
              24-120mm f/4 (at 85mm)
              I had to reduce the size and lower the JPEG to be able to download it (2MB max)

            • Spy Black

              Not being wine connoisseur, I wouldn’t know what makes your bottle famous. 🙂 I do however see the same edge softness I saw in the buildings shot.

              While this probably isn’t a horrible lens, I’m not seeing anything in these shots that would designate it a GREAT lens.

            • T.I.M

              Of course the corners are soft, they are out of focus !
              I don’t work for Nikon so there is no benefit for me to say a bad lens is good.
              I just find my 24-120mm to be a great lens.
              That bottle is only famous because I have been using it as a sample for many years (I don’t drink wine by the way) the bottle now worth $700-$900

            • Spy Black

              I’m not talking about the corners, I’m referring to the edges. The top and bottom of the bottle, as well as the buildings at each end of the frame are soft. In comparison, my late 90s Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 is already sharp at the edges by f/5.6, and sharp at the corners by f/8. Perhaps by f/11 you may start to get the edges sharp on this Nikkor, but now you’re reaching the diffraction point of no return.

              The reality is that when you make a lens zoom as much as you have in this lens, image quality will inevitably suffer. That’s why the sharpest zooms have limited zoom ranges. These lenses are designed primarily for convenience, and in that respect I’m sure it serves well.

            • T.I.M

              f/8
              The full size picture is very sharp, all over.

          • Eledeuh

            The 24-120 f/4 really is a decent lens.

            Of course you can’t expect a 24-70 f/2.8 level of performance, but it doesn’t have the price-tag either, and has a larger zoom range.

            At its wider end it doesn’t have the greatest performance in the corners ; but really apart from that it does very well.

    • Eric Calabros

      oh man, apply a curve to your wife

      • T.I.M

        She is my daughter (one of the 3 I have)

          She’s a cute girl. You’re going to have get a baseball bat to drive off the boys! 🙂

  • Eric Duminil

    I’ve seen this setup too many times at events, with people combining expensive body + expensive slow zoom + expensive on-camera flash, using everything on auto mode. They’re basically using a glorified P&S.

    • Eric Calabros

      Well its 16-80 f/2.8 equivalent on DX or 12-60 f/2 on m4/3 or 8.8-44 f/1.4 on CX. We have these? No.

      • Eric Duminil

        You have a point. But given the weight and size of the combo, you could combine 2 or 3 primes on any of those formats, still gather more light and use much less space.
        The bad results mostly come from on-camera flash, pointing straight at the subject.
        Finally, two of the last people I met with this setup insisted on shooting at f/13 in order to get sharp results, no matter how bad the whole scene looked.

      • PhilK
      • Allen_Wentz

        We do have 16-80mm f/2.8-4 DX Nikkor.

  • whisky

    deal’s gone. bye-bye.

  • TylerChappell

    How good are Lexar’s cards compared to SanDisk’s and their customer service? SanDisk has always replaced any of my cards that have ever gotten corrupted, free of charge, without even the slightest bit of trouble. But it seems when it comes to pure speed, Lexar has faster options than SanDisk, but how reliable and consistent are their proclaimed speeds?

    • whisky

      i only use three brands — Sandisk, Lexar, and Transcend. they’ve all proven reliable over time. on the rare occasion a card failed, once due to a Nikon firmware upgrade, they’ve all stepped up to the plate.

  • Hardcore_Fanboy

    D800 = 900$; 24-120 = 600$; sb-910 =300$ and “extras” = questionable if there is any value at all… so my math is 900+600+300 = 1800$ and that is < 2789$, obviously without "extras"

    • PhilK

      Every used D800 I’ve ever seen sold for close to $900 was beat to h*ll. I don’t think you will find a new or refurb product with warranty for much cheaper than that bundle price.

    • T.I.M

      a like new D800 on Ebay is about $1300-$1800
