Upgraded Nikon Mid range zoom lens to 24-70mm f2.8 VR

It is very important to match the resolution of the lens to the resolution of the sensor so that the lens is equal to or better than that of the sensor.

The problem when a lens is of lower resolution than the sensor is that always an image at it's sharpest, where the subject matter is positioned at the point the lens was focused on, appears blurred when zoomed and viewed close enough on the computer screen to discern the limit of sharpness.

The Nikon D800E body with a sensor size of 37MP as my main camera body, the older lens being the 28-70mm f2.8 SW mid range zoom designed in the later days of film and earlier years of DSLR provided images that were matched to the lower resolution of film and thus caused the problem of blurred sharpness.

The change from the old mid range zoom lens to the 24-70mm f2.8 SW VR was a real revelation and revolution when the upgrade was carried out, and so the upgrade from the 17-24mm f2.8 SW lens to the later digital resolution 14-24mm f2.8 SW followed very quickly!
