    The Nikkor 24-85 is a very good lens. Sharp throughout the different focal lengths. Fast focusing esp with the AFS. Only thing is the build. Dust tends to get into the lens. It does not affect your picture at all but if you can't stand to see dust inside, don't get it cos you will definitely get dust inside. Not too sure abt the price. Get an e-quote from Cathay?

    Its a good buy. Value for money and its a great lens.

    also bear in mind that the afs 24-85 is a slower lens than the 24-70 f2.8

    you sacrifice half stop at the wide end and one and half stop at the tele end...
    but still a great lens...
    cannot be used with some older nikkon cameras though.... so check your camera model.
