Tokina AT-X 24-70mm f:2.8 PRO FX lens for Nikon F mount lens review
Tokina AT-X 24-70mm f:2.8 PRO FX lens test
DxOMark tested the Tokina AT-X 24-70mm f/2.8 PRO FX lens for Nikon F mount:

The Tokina 24-70mm f/2.8 is an excellent pro-grade standard zoom lens for Nikon full-frame DSLRs. Tested on the D800E, it delivers marginally better image quality compared to the popular third-party Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 and Nikon’s own 24-70mm f/2.8G, due to its excellent sharpness between f/4 and f/11 at most focal lengths. At the maximum f/2.8 aperture setting, it isn’t quite as sharp as the Nikon and Tamron competition, however, which could be a significant factor for photographers who regularly shoot wide open. At $999, the Tokina 24-70mm f/2.8 is notably cheaper than both the Nikon and Tamron equivalents, too. It lacks image stabilization, which could be important depending on what you’re shooting, but otherwise offers a solid build, and a snappy autofocus motor and manual focus override system. Most importantly, image quality is very good, making the Tokina 24-70mm f/2.8 an attractive third-party option for Nikon full-frame photographers.
