WELL DONE, NIKON

The shape and handeling of this lens reminds me of one of my all time favorite Nikon lenses, the 17-35 f2.8. The fact that it is lighter and cheaper is a good thing for me and the kind of shooting that I do at this focal range. The best news is that it has better edge-to-edge sharpness than that lens. IQ wise it falls between the great 16-35 VR and the venerable 14-24 lenses, but of course once again in a more compact and lighter package. It certainly cannot compete with those lenses for lowe...

The shape and handeling of this lens reminds me of one of my all time favorite Nikon lenses, the 17-35 f2.8. The fact that it is lighter and cheaper is a good thing for me and the kind of shooting that I do at this focal range. The best news is that it has better edge-to-edge sharpness than that lens. IQ wise it falls between the great 16-35 VR and the venerable 14-24 lenses, but of course once again in a more compact and lighter package. It certainly cannot compete with those lenses for lower light shooting and their pro-grade build quality, but on my D600, that has such an amazing useable, ISO range, this lens works quite well for me. The build quality is definitely in the pro-sumer range, but given the light weight, it has a very nice "feel" as the zoom ring is perfectly damped. If the choice was available, I would give this unit a 41/2 star rating. I am very pleased with this product and it's price/quality ratio. Well done again, Nikon.

super lens for the money

By

This is a beautiful lens for the money. My copy is a refurbished, but it looks and works like new. The lens is very light weight, a great virtue for lugging it attached to my D600 on long hikes. This also makes operating the lens/camera on a tripod much easier than beefier lenses. Best feature is the impressive sharpness at all focal lengths. The level of detail in close objects is just astonishing on the D600. Even distant objects show definition I just would not expect to see. All told, for the money you just cannot go wrong with this sharp, lightweight beauty. It doesn't carry the Nikon gold ring, like the 16-35, 17-35 or 14-24; but it SHOULD.

Great inexpensive wide angle

By

I originally purchased this lens for real estate photography and have ended up using it for much more than that. It is a great wide angle lens however I do regret not investing in the 17-35 f2.8. So far it is held up to all that it has been faced with. Only complaint is that the lens is so light that it feels cheap. In this case cheap does not mean low quality in any way.

Wide and sharpe

By

Great lens. It was this or the 16-35 VR and I decided that I did not need VR so much at this length. Equally important is that this lens is much lighter.

One of the better

By

I use this for my current job, photographing cars. It does a great job letting me work in tight areas while I'm still getting the whole view with very little distortion. The lens flares it produces at the right angle are pretty darn sweet too. :D

Wide enough and very, very sharp !

By

The experts say it has vignetting and distortion, but I haven't seen any of those in normal shooting.But I can see the clarity and sharpness in every shot, even if I shoot wide open. It's light and small and nothing is moving while zooming or focusing (the front glass element is moving in and out just a fraction while zooming, but it all happens behind the filter, so no problem there) The zoom is so nicely dampened that it makes you play with it for the sheer fun. It's the most inexpensive new wide zoom from Nikon but they made it awesome (for the price) I'm happy :)

Light lens with incredible sharpness

By

love this lens, just got it and cant imagine how light it seems... pictures are real sharp with great colors and replication of what you see. I was excited to do landscapes using this lens and no noticeable softness at the edges was found at the edges.

SCOTT A  Yes,but this lens is intended as a ultra wide for fx format it's a pretty limited range on dx.you're better off with the 18-55 DX vr which is just as sharp and has mor range or better yet, get the 16-85 vr
