We summarize the scores and analyses of multi-purpose zoom lenses in this second part of our review of the best lenses for the Nikon D5. More versatile than primes, zoom lenses are often a more convenient choice for shooting in fast-paced environments when you don’t always have time to switch lenses. Although primes generally deliver better image quality, with noticeably improved edge sharpness and transmission, zoom performance has steadily improved, and now some come close to rivalling the performance of a prime.
The Tokina AT-X 24-70mm f/2.8 PRO FX (Tokina 24-70mm f/2.8) is a wide-angle to short telephoto, fast-aperture standard zoom for use on full-frame Canon or Nikon DSLRs. Great lens metric scores from Tokina’s latest affordable, pro-grade, standard zoom for Nikon full-frame DSLRs.
Announced as one of a trio of lenses in the new G Master series, the new FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM boasts some pretty advanced technology to complement future sensor and camera designs. The G Master range sits above the maker’s already high-end G series and carries a hefty premium. The FE 24-70mm F2.8 will set you back close to $2,200.
After releasing the highly-regarded 35mm and 24mm f1.4 DG HSM Art series primes, Sigma has introduced an ultra-fast, high-grade 24-35mm f2 DG HSM Art zoom intended to appeal to enthusiasts who might favor convenience over outright lens speed. Available in Canon and now Nikon lens mount versions, the Sigma 24-35mm f2 DG HSM Art is a constant-aperture, full-frame zoom designed to rival the equivalent focal length f/2 and f/2.8 primes in image quality, and tempt people away from standard zooms.
