28-70 lens
AFS Zoom-Nikkor - 28-70mm f2.8 IF-ED (2.5x)
  • Two ED glass elements minimize chromatic aberrations
  • Molded-glass aspherical lens for minimized distortion, higher resolution and superior contrast
  • Holds fast and constant f/2.8 maximum aperture through the entire focal range
  • M/A mode for quick switching between autofocus and manual focus operation
  • Nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural
An exceptionally sharp and fast focusing lens, This lens is a favorite of photojournalists and sports photographers, and anyone else who can afford to buy one.

Unlike the 24-120 f3.5 VR lens discussed above, the 28-70 f2.8 is not a lens for all situations
. It does not cover wide angle on a DSLR and it does not substitute for a telephoto. But it is an ideal portrait and 'normal' lens in low light situations.

You could think of this as the equivalent of a normal 50mm lens (on a 35mm film camera) with enhanced cropping capabilities.

Equivalent to 42-105mm focal length on 35mm.

AF Zoom-Nikkor - 28-200mm f3.5-5.6G IF-ED (7.1x)
  • Affordable high-power (7.1x) zoom capability in a compact design
  • Ultra-compact optical system with 62mm filter attachment size
  • Three aspherical lenses and three ED glass elements for higher optical performancen
  • Seven-blade rounded diaphragm achieves a natural blur for out-of-focus elements
  • 0.44m closest focusing at 200mm
This is one of my favorite light-weight walking around lenses, very similar to working with one of the super zoom EVF cameras. It has now been kind of obsoleted by the new 18-200mm DX lens, but for the money it is still pretty hard to beat and makes a good lens for a beginning photographer on a budget with a Nikon D50 or D70.

Equivalent to 42-300mm focal length on 35mm.
