I just placed an order for this from my favorite seller.
I was shooting a close-up live musical performance by a friend last weekend at a small venue. I didn’t like having to choose between my 50mm f/1.4 and my 20-35 f/2.8. So I decided to cover that range with one lens — the Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8 AF-S.
I’m looking forward to its delivery in about a week.
