      Has anyone had any local first-hand experience with this newish Nikon lens?

      Read a very favourable review on:
      http://mansurovs.com/?s=Nikon+24-120+vs+28-30

      Took the Ken Rockwell review on this lens with a pinch of salt especially when compared to the new 28-300. How can a variable aperture zoom ever be better the a fixed zoom??

      Many still recommend the Nikon 24-70 f2.8 but that is a hunk of glass to carry around.

      This would be for more general travel photography and low-light scenario not always a consideration.

      Hey Martin,

      Just buy it. What else even comes close??

      Regards,

      I’m very happy with this lens – it is very sharp – has excellent contrast and saturation – it really is much better than the 28-300mm – I have both!
      You can see examples on: http://www.pasquierphoto.blogspot.com
      I prefer it to the 24-70mm, as I like the extra reach offered and the VR more than offsets the f4.0 aperture.
      That said, the 24-70mm is a superb piece of glass.
      HTH, P:)
