answer 1
Yes, this lens is fully compatible with the D5100 camera. However, the D5100 is a DX camera, so it will crop the image that is projected by this lens. In doing so, it will make your images appear closer than when using the same lens on a Full Frame (FX) camera. The crop factor is 1.5, so the 24mm end will act like a 36mm lens on an FX camera. The 70mm end will act like a 105mm lens on an FX camera. If the range from 36mm to 105mm will do what you want it to do, then this will be a good lens for you.

However, most photographers prefer a range of 17-55mm on a DX camera when shooting people and events. Nikon makes a great 17-55mm f/2.8 DX lens specifically for this purpose. I recommend you consider it as an alternative. The image quality of the 17-55mm f/2.8 DX lens is essentually equal to the 24-70mm f/2.8 FX lens. I used the 17-55mm f/2.8 for several years for shooting weddings before I converted to FX with the D3 camera.

Question

I am planning on buying some high end lenses, but I am reading quite a few comments on the Internet about focusing issues and quality control.

Can you comment on this? I'm concerned that there must be a reason these posts are appearing on the Internet.

I am sending my fairly new version of this lens back because it has never auto-focused on my D800, which I assume falls under the issues of quality control. Other lenses focus just fine of the D800, so this must be an issue with the lens and not the camera body I assume. If I find anythign else out after submitting the lens for Nikon warranty repair/service I wil advise.

There have been reports of focusing issues with the D800 and a fix is already rumored to exist. I have never heard of a QC problem with high end Nikon glass. I own the 24-70 and it is a very fine lens. I have quite a few Nikon lenses and I have not had a problem with quality. In any case, Nikon stands behind their products, so I would not be concerned.

Yes, in fact it is one of the very best lenses with the D700. I shoot with a D3, which has the same sensor as the D700, and about 95% of my shots use this lens. It is extremely sharp and low in distortion.

Question

AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED

Hello

I bought this lens few weeks ago and I went outside to take pictures in national park, when It was dusty and windy. When I zoom, the dust sometimes get inside and when is there some dirt and I zoom again then it scratch a little bit and I do not know how to get rid of the dirt that is stuck in that place. Hopefully you know what spot do I mean where the small dirt can get. My question is if It damages lens at all or It is minor issue.
Another feature that I noticed is that when I use manual focus ring that I can turn around many times I can. I thought that I cam turn only a quarter of ring. Does it somehow damages lens if i turns it more that the quarter, because when I turn more the limit, there is some resistance but not that significant.
Thank you

Question

D300s with 24-70 and 17-55

I currently have a 17-55 on my D300s. I am thinking of getting the 24-70, my question is, is there any sense in getting the 24-70, since the focal length of the 17-55 pretty much is in range with the 24-70?

And since the 24-70 is a FX lens... What is the actual focal length of this lens and a DX body such as a D300s?

Thanks

If you already have the 17-55 then I personally wouldnt bother woth the 24-70, however good it may be you will be spending money for an extra 15mm of reach. You may want to consider the 70-200 or similar to add to what you already use.
As for the focal lengths, the 24-70 will be a 24-70 on DX, the focal length doesnt change, its the angle of view that changes and if you have not used film or an FX body then I really wouldnt worry about the difference as its going to mean absolutely nothing to you, just use a lens that does what you want it to.

Mark, it depends on your shooting profile and if you have other lens beyond 55. While initially the ranges seem similar their not. Because of the DX crop factor (1.522x). Actually the FX 24-70 on your DX camera would be actually 36-106. I suggest reviewing the metadata from your pictures to see what your shooting profile is (ie the focal range of the majority of your shots). Also recommend checking out Nikon's lens simulator so you can see the diffrence between the two lens. http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/lens/simulator/

Lastly, these are both great lens with the exception that one was made for DX cameras and the other for FX cameras. I own the 24-70 and its great for everyday.

Hi
I would say nothing less than the 24-70mm,it would be great if you are very near burn out area,
anything down tack will be a dot...
the 17-55 is landscape lens, I would say it’s not even a question...

I do photograph NHRA when they come to my area.. I have used a 70-200mm usually only that...
but, I’m in the stands or at the safety wall, and unless the cars are right in front of me , i keep close to 200mm...

This lens would be tack sharp for sure, really would be nice lens if you are right there at burn out and maybe 50 ft down track ...

Hope this helps...

To my knowledge, the teleconverters made by Nikon are specifically made for certain lenses,
and I believe mostly tele photos lenses...ie: 70-200mm, 200-400mm,etc...

I can’t find actual list of lenses that will work with the teleconverters...

Contact "Service and Support" in above main menu...

Yes, because it is an AF-S lens. This means the lens has a focusing motor inside it, and the camera doesn't need to power the focusing.

Lenses that are not AF-S need a camera with a drive screw in them to focus them. The D40 does not have a drive screw.

I can not imagine why you would need lens cleaned from inside...
If there is debris inside your lens, you have bigger problems than dirty lens...
I would contact "Service and Support" in main menu above...

Question

My 24-70 is 1 year old. In the last month I have noticed it is not focussing sharply.

I use auto focus and move my focus point around to put it exactly over the area of the image I want focussed (usually someones eye), I notice when focussing on something in the middle of the frame, the lens does tend to be sharp, but as soon as you move the focus point to the outer edges it is focussing behind my focus point. Very frustrating as my images are no longer sharp where I want them to be, if at all. I use a D700 camera body. I also use wide apertures like 4.0 and 3.5. Has any one else had this issue, or can anyone let me know what I should do? I need to have pin sharp images obviously not soft ones! I am a wedding photographer, but also do some maternity and baby photos.

If you are sure that it is not focusing sharply, then either the camera or the lens have a problem. You will need to send them both in to Nikon Repair to be checked and adjusted.

Yes, You will get at a 1.5x crop so the lens will work as a 36-105mm on a D3100, which works well for portrait. The only thing to consider is that the lens is heavy, so with the D3100 you might want to take that into consideration. Best to go to your local shop and try out the combination.

hi
any lens with f/2.8 or 1.4 is best u can get for low light.
do u need telephoto lens to zoom in in action?
are you close to action?
if you r not to far away this 24-70 is pretty versatile lens.
if you are far away then think more like 70-200mm,
also, VR is very nice for low light.
hope this helps

This lens performs very well in low light. For shooting sports you may want a telephoto lens in order to get shots that bring you closer to the action. The Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 would be an excellent option also.
