The Sentiment Analysis of key attributes from the reviews is summarized as follows:
Compact and versatile 5X standard zoom lens with f/4 maximum aperture Perfect for landscapes, portraits, weddings and distant subjects offering a constant maximum aperture to maintain exposure settings throughout the entire zoom range and VR II Image Stabilization. Extended range on Nikon DX-format D-SLR cameras Angle of view is equivalent to a focal length of 36-180mm in FX/35mm format Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture. Nano Crystal Coat Further reduces ghosting and interior flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity. 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture setting. 3 Aspherical Lens Elements Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration, even when shooting at the widest available aperture. M/A Focus Mode Switch Enables quick changes between manual and autofocus operation Internal Focus (IF) Provides fast and quiet autofocus without changing the length of the lens, retaining working distance throughout the focus range. Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) Enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus. Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC) Enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare. Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm Renders more natural appearance of out-of-focus image areas.
Nikon's produced a nice kit lens for full-frame bodies, though it's not without its caveats. The lens fared quite well in our tests, for the most part - the big problem is the wide open performance at 70 and 85mm, where it's quite soft indeed when used at ƒ/4.
The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G ED VR is one of a few Nikon full-frame (FX) zoom lenses that start at 24mm. Of them, it has the longest zoom ratio at 5x, but the middle price and aperture.
The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm F4G ED VR covers a useful wide-angle to telephoto range with a fixed F4 maximum aperture, featuring Vibration Reduction for shake-free hand-held shooting at shutter speeds four stops slower than would usually possible (with both 'Normal' and 'Active' modes).
