The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR Lens is one of the budget-friendly full-range camera lenses. It can give you an excellent shot, whether it a landscape or a portrait!

The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85 mm lens includes a metal mount and a 23mm rear element. One of the distinguishing features of the Nikon 24-85mm lens is the focus distance that ranges from (extensive) wide-angle to the modest telephoto. It covers the frequently used focal range (24mm to 85mm). Thus, it is perfect for regular and professional photographers. It comes in handy when capturing landscapes, group photos, candid shots, architecture, head-to-shoulder portraits, and so on.

Our Take on the the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85 mm lens:

The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85 mm lens unit has a 22mm zoom ring located a few millimeters behind the rear section of the full-frame lens. There is a rubber grip band with the “focus distance” settings stamped on the trailing end of the lens. As you turn the zoom ring, the lens gets extended by 31mm. It highlights an inner focusing system. And the slider at the back end of the focusing range of the NIKKOR 24-85mm lens barrel lets you switch from auto-focus to manual focus. It is compatible with D600 and other full-range camera bodies from the Nikon DX series. The distance scale is located behind the zoom ring and reads distance in meters and feet. Both zooming and focusing are internal, which implies that the rear element of the lens can’t rotate.

The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85 mm lens incorporates one lens element made of ED (ultra-low dispersion) glass to minimize chromatic aberrations. It also includes three aspherical elements to reduce spherical aberrations. You will likely find minimal chromatic aberrations when shooting in jpg as there is no aberration in jpg files. Still, they are visible in RAW files. You can compensate for chromatic aberrations using Capture NX, Photoshop, and Lightroom software tools, but doing so will take extra time in pre-processing the shots. However, if you’re looking for an affordable, mid-range zoom lens, Nikon 24-85 ED VR is a good option.

The optical design of the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85 mm lens incorporates 16 elements in 11 groups. What's more, this unit comprises traditional Super Integrated Coating that minimizes flare and ghosting. Seven rounded aperture blades combine to form an iris diaphragm. The lens includes a 72mm filter. The SWM or Silent Wave Motor technology justifies its name and offers a rapid, accurate, and noise-free autofocus with the motor. Weighing just 465g, the AF-S Nikkor f/3.5-4.5G ED VR is lighter and compact than other standard Nikon zoom lenses.
