Is there any word on why the Nikon 24-70 2.8 lens is backordered everywhere? Or, any news on when we might start seeing stock show up again in the USA?
24-70 2.8 lens backorder(6 posts) (5 voices)
I think that Nikon has drastically scaled back their production. My guess is that any of the lenses produced in Japan (presumeably by Nikon employees) are probably going to be in short supply. I'm sure they will get a new batch out in the next month or two.
Alternative lens for FX shooting may be a 24-120mm - I have met some pro shooters who highly recommend it (except Ken Rockwell).
I own the 24-70 and personally believe it's the best mid-range zoom lens available. I mainly shoot portraits and I could not be happier with the results.
I had the 24-120 and I have 24-70. The first one is really nice lens, small and lightweight; however the second one IQ is far better, unfortunately in direct comparison it lacks the additional 50mm that You can get from the 24-120mm.
I heard the 24-120 wasn't that great.
Maybe okay as an all around lens, but it has bad distortion.
NSX it is a good lens within it's price range which is couple times lower than the price of 24-70
