Sharpness at 50mm
The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G VR lens was attached to a Nikon D700 body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Exposure delay mode was activated. Tonal and colour variances across the crops are due to changes in natural light during the session. The 100% crops represent about 1/300th of the total frame area.
The full frame at 50mm
Centre sharpness is once again impressive (for a zoom lens) from f/4 through f/11.
Edge sharpness isn't that great wide open, but there's little reason to complain about performance in the f/5.6-11 range.
