24-85 2.8-4D or 24-85 VR for D610

見D610 body 想入一部加支二手鏡用,大家點睇?
有朋友用過24-85 VR 話好易壞!

I have the older 2.8-4.  It is acatually a pretty good lens.  Its my walk around lens when I'm not using the 17-35.

The 2.8 has a bit more complicated distortion at 24mm than the VR.  The VR has barrel distortion which is easier to correct with software.  Sharpness of both is good at f5.6 and very good at f8-f11.  With D610 I think its sharpness should not be a problem.  (The edge sharpness is a problem with my D800e at wide open, its less of an issue with my D4)

The 24-120 VR is, in my opinion, a better lens - but then its a lot more expensive.

    hi , have you have any experience of this lens on D800e/810? I use A7r and dont mind manual focus. but i worry it might not be sharp enough to take advatange of the sensor

(if i remember correct the 24-85 2.8 was one of the last nikon lens that use lead production which later was banned due to regulation. so the colour is quite different to newer G lens? [in a nice way]  )

I have the older version, which is AF with macro.  And yes, it does have old lead glass.  Its color is similar to my 17-35, with a bit less contrast.

The edge is soft on my 800e - it really need f8 to f11 to be sharp at the edges.  However, sharpness is very good over 7-80% of the frame, even when wide open, esp in the wide end.

Overall I think it is a very good general purpose lens.  If you need a sharper lens you'll need to pay a lot more money!
