One of the common pieces of advice on NRF is "Invest in good Glass"
and yes we all love spending other peoples money
There was a time when Nikon made some pretty poor lenses
The old 24-120mm VR This lens gave zooms a bad name
The 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5 AI-s gave variable aperture lenses a bad name
The 24-70mm f/2.8 has an excellent reputation and will almost certainly be sharper than the 24-85 f/3.5-4.5
But it three times the price and twice the weight
Does any one think the 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5 AI-s is not "good glass "
are there any current Nikon lenses you would defiantly not recommend
Please let us know, if your comments are based on personal experience, reviews you have read, or just a gut feeling
