Two exciting new lenses…..
Nikon just released information about two new lenses that I believe will be a very welcome additions to the lens line. Above the new 18-300 AF-S DX f 3.5-5.6 G ED VR lens is the 28-300 lens for DX, however with the 1.5 cropping factor of DX sensors it will be the equivalent of a whopping, 27 mm to 450 mm super zoom! I have not gotten my sample yet, but based on the spectacular performance of the 28-300 FX lens, this one should be very special. I can see it as a great all around lens for travel, sports and nature. teamed with a 10-24 or 12-24 and you could cover from 15 mm or 18 mm all the way to 450 mm, what a range!
The other lens below is less expensive version of Nikon’s tremendously sharp, 24-70 f 2.8 lens, and this one will include VR II which will make the lens even more useful. The AF-S Nikkor 24-85 f 3.5-4.5G ED VR should be a wonderful FX lens for those folks looking for a midrange zoom that is more affordable, yet very capable. I will test both lenses when I get them and keep you posted, I am expecting big things from both!
