Will a 24-70mm f/2.8 work on a Nikon D90 DX body?

Matt says… There’s no is­sue in us­ing a full-frame lens on a DX body, Manin­der. The only is­sue comes when you try to do the op­po­site: at­tach­ing a DX lens to a full-frame body will re­sult in an im­age with a black frame all around the im­age, as the (smaller) im­age cir­cle of the lens won’t cover the sen­sor. The 24-70mm f/2.8 is an ex­cel­lent, ver­sa­tile lens. The only thing to bear in mind is that, with a cropped sen­sor, the ef­fec­tive fo­cal length of the lens would be 36-105mm. This would prob­a­bly be an ad­van­tage for most types of pho­tog­ra­phy, but for land­scapes it wouldn’t be as use­ful. I’d still rec­om­mend the lens, though, as it’ll be use­ful if you ever choose to up­grade to a full-frame body.
