AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED is an ultra-wideangle zoom lens that offers a range of professional-level features for overall superior performance. In addition to boasting the shortest closest-focusing distance in its class 0.28m (0.9 ft.) throughout the entire zoom range the lens also features a fastconstant maximum aperture of f/2.8 at all focal lengths. It is ideal for photojournalism and general professional-level photographic needs
This new lens also features Nikon's exclusive built-in Silent Wave Motor for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus operation, as well as ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass and aspherical lens elements in a new optical design.
Other features include M/A mode, which lets users switch quickly from automatic to manual focusing, even during AF servo operation, with virtually no time lag. Plus, the lens drive operation consumes no power during manual focusing
Used with Nikon's Professional D Series Digital SLR's, the image reproduction ratio will be identical to that of a Nikon 35mm SLR, but for the 23.7mm x 15.6mm CCD, the lens' effective coverage will be equivalent to using a 25.5mm to 52.5mm zoomon 35mm (135) film format
Every advertised description / rating of this lens was "spot on" !
Just outstanding!!!! Very durable, accurate and sweeeeet lens. A must lens for any serious photographer.
It looks and functions extremely well. Only very slight flaw is with the lens hood.....it's difficult to place properly requiring only a greater attention to its attachment. a very minor complaint for the high quality and great price.
I have had this lens only a short time, however I have made many images with available light (f2.8) and daylight work with apps of f4-5.6 at much of the zoom range. Sharpness is excellent, compact lens, a little heavy but that adds to stability of shooting in low light and low shutter speeds (as low as 1/10th sec) hand held rendering sharp images. I would certainly urge any photog doing photojournalistic or event work to include this lens in your bag. It does take some knowledge of short lenses to get the image you re looking for. Note - I have used another photogs lens of this type prior to purchasing one. For my work it is an "everyday lens!"
This lens performs beautifully, smooth, has a fast focus and feels sturdy. I bought it used since new is a bit in the pricey side, but it is worth every cent. A must have lens.
Nice clear lens takes great pictures. I just disappointed that it squeaks and it is common problem with this lens.
This is a great lens. Nikon has newer lenses that are about the same but this one is made of metal. It is a classic and does exactly what I needed. I'll have it forever.
Purchased to shoot swimming pool and backyard hardscapes. In full sun and low light this lens provides professional dynamic frames. Stunning image clarity mated with D600.
I bought this lens a year ago and it's pretty useful in landscapes, street photography and indoor shoots. Unlike 16-35 vignetting and distortion does not bother much, and can be easily corrected in Photoshop. I use a D800 and I've seen some comments that this lens is not sharp which I don't agree. If you want a general professional walk-around lens this one is yours.
