Photo: The Roots @ The Fox, 2008

 (Todd Owyoung)

When writing my recent review of the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I went back into the archives to find images that I thought would help illustrate some of the reasons I find this midrange zoom so incredibly useful.

One such image was this shot of the Roots performing in support of Erykah Badu at the Fabulous Fox Theater. It wasn't posted with the original set, and I thought it was worth a post of its own.

And since we're on the subject of the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, here are two crops from the above – converted from the RAW with the default sharpening of Adobe Lightroom 3.

Crop 1:

Crop 2:

Camera: Nikon D3
Lens: Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
Exposure Time: 1/500
F Number: 3.2
Exposure: Manual
ISO: 1600
Focal Length: 24.0mm

Now, that is a gorgeous amount of detail in ?uestlove's snare, if I do say so myself. If anything the default sharpening of Lightroom is blocking up detail with too large of a sharpening radius, which to me is the mark of any good lens.
