The Nikkor AF-S 28-70mm f/2.8D IF-ED delivered a very impressive performance in the lab. The resolution figures are very good to excellent with a highly impressive peak performance around f/5.6. The level of distortions is exceptionally low for a zoom lens. CAs are moderate except at 40mm @ f/2.8. Vignetting is very well controlled. The build quality of the lens is superb and it ´s a joy to handle it despite its comparatively hefty size and weight. Typical for most classic standard zooms it looses quite a bit of its attraction on APS-C DSLRs – a focal length range equivalent to 42-105mm may not be up to everybody ´s taste anymore.

This is a spectacular lens. It’s also spectacularly big, heavy and expensive. I’m afraid of this 28-70mm lens because it is so big and heavy. It is Nikon’s heaviest midrange zoom ever. I’d never want to walk around with this thing hanging off the front of my camera. If you spend more time shooting than carrying it, it’s a great lens. READ FULL REVIEW
