In this video, we take a look at one of Nikon’s most popular lenses: the Nikon 24-120mm f/4 VR G(http://bit.ly/24-120mm). With that focal range it makes a perfect walk-around lens. But is it good glass?

  2. I use this lens with a Nikon D810. Among very positive reviews, I had read a couple of lukewarm appraisals about it so was cautious about its performance when I purchased it. However, since then, it's hardly been off the camera body, despite my carrying around the superb Nikon 14-24mm and the new Nikon 70-300mm as my kit. This is a great versatile 'walkabout lens', covering most situations. It is pin sharp across the frame, except at the extreme length of the zoom (and even then, it's still good), has fine contrast, little vignetting or chromatic aberration and is sturdily built. The only drawback is barrel or pincushion distortion but you can correct this through Lightroom or Photoshop. I'm glad I invested in it.

  3. I have just about every NIkon lens in the book, but this one is my favorite. He's right about the focus ring. It's too small, and there is a little "slop" or play in it. However, it's far from being a deal breaker. Another negative is the lens hood never stays on. The VR is fantastic. I can be shaking because of the cold, or whatever makes me do so, and never have a blurry image. I can't talk enough about this lens.

  5. You seem to be knowledgeable about camera gear but I do get puzzled about some of your opinions. I own the  Nikon 24-120mm lens and it seems to me that you are exaggerating problems way more than they really are. I own several lenses and this one is a real gem. I use it on my Nikon Df and is just a fantastic combination. The Df is another piece of equipment that you made sound like it was a real looser when in fact it is a really fun camera that takes just fantastic images. I realize that the Df might not be the best camera for a pro to use exclusively but I think we both know that it's not built for that. It's for people like me that bought our first Nikon back in the seventies and just love to be able to melt the analog with the digital.

  7. Somebody hit this arrogant twat on the back of the head with a Banjo. Does he not realise people watch these videos to see what the product is like and not to watch him and his ugly mug..

  8. I know why I just can't stand his reviews. First of all he is quite arrogant in his attitude and his effort to play funny doesn't do it for me sorry! For instance; Why not explain the difference between VR – active and normal mode to those who don't know the difference???!
    instead he is making stupid comments about "normal and active people" and then he just moves on.

  9. I think the active setting on Nikon's VR is based on how active you are, not the subject. I think they recommend only putting it on active if you're bumping around in a car or boat and trying to get a shot… or being really pervy.

  10. Thumbs down. I'm tired of all the perverted bs. Come on dude there are decent people in the world that don't need to hear you talk about that crap. Just explain the details of the lens already.

  11. "Active" for Active people- "Normal" for normal people hehehe You got HUMOR dude 🙂

    "Active" mode is for panning, this lens is smart, measuring the "panning" movement and still filtering the vibrations!
