      I keep looking at more expensive glass but can't come up with an excuse to replace this lens. The 20-35 is too heavy to lug around all day, the 14-24 won't take filters, and the 16-35 is too long. This was [$] new and has taken great photos over the past 7 years with no problems. Shooting indoors without flash on the D700, with its incredible ISOs, there's no advantage in moving to a faster lens. Here's one lesson in 40 years of shooting: the heavy glass ends up staying in the bag. So I end up asking myself, why pay out well over $1000 for a lens that is hardly optically better, hogs room in the bag, and weighs too much to want to use often? You can knock off points for distortion and sharpness, but this lens deserves five stars for value, performance and quality in its price range.

      Not the same speed, build quality or optical quality of the 17-35mm 2.8 - but at one third the cost it's good to have Nikon glass. Stopped down it's much better than wide open. I only use a lens of this focal range once in a while for sweeping views of the church, couple on the beach, all encompassing view of the reception venue. It's worth the $1000 savings for the frequency of use it receives. That being said, I will ultimately get the 17-35 (or the 14-24) just because I'm a stickler for the ultimate quality.

        I love this lens. It's versatile, fairly light weight and perfect for landscapes and travel. I had the same lens for five years and traveled the world with it. On a recent trip it got smashed in a fall. I promptly replaced it with the exact same lens.

              I may have gotten the last one of these. Anyway, it fills a void in my system that has existed for way too long. Great zoom range. This one is built great, sharp, nice functionality. I'm glad I got it.

                    its very light

                    does not flare! thats huge as i like to shoot into the sun

                    close focus

                    sharp

                    get its, its great, let the lens snobs pay more for the 17-35. They are both super close by F8 where you are going to be using this

                    I use this lens exclusively for landscapes and have been more than pleased with the results. It is very light weight and fits in my small bag easily despite the 77mm front. When shot on a tripod or monopod in the f5.6-f16 at low ISO's my lens is tack sharp and produces large prints with little trouble. Good job Nikon.

                      I have used the product for Candid shots and some portraits. It gives a nice warmth to my images and does focus great. I have the kit lens 18-135 and really disliked the images I got from it. I bought this as some what of a replacement and am very happy so far. It is great for a wide angle that isn't going to break the bank. I bought the imported version and have issues with the lens cap (the one goes on the side that goes on the camera). It is extremely hard to get off and during a session actually cut my hand bad enough that I needed stiches. Might be worth it to buy the USA version.

                          It has been a long time since I've had a true wide angle. I'm quite impressed with the angle of view on my F5 and it is still wide enough on my D90. Speed seems very good with what I've shot so far. A lot of bang for your buck you might say.

                            This is a great lens. I upgraded from the 18-70mm DX lens because I plan on getting an FX format camera. I didn't want to put down a ton of money for the 17-35mm lens and thought this would make a good fit.

                              I've been adding pro glass to my bag for some time but didn't have enough applications for wide-angle to justify the $1900+ price tag of the 14-24mm. This lens is relatively light, tack-sharp and has a very fast focus.

                                Comments about Nikon Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D ED-IF Autofocus Lens:

                                This lens was purchased just before a trip to Joshua Tree National Park for use on my D700. I could have used my Sigma 10-20mm from my D300 lens kit but, for the price, the Nikon 18-35mm looked like a good buy and preserved full image file size. While I noticed a slight amount of CA in one image, overall the 18-35mm worked very well.

                                I couldn't see the additional dollars for Nikon's 16-35mm f4 VR lens. I usually use a tripod or, if hiking, a monopod so the value of VR in a wide angle lens is marginal. And since I usually shoot at f8 or slower, Nikon's fast wide zooms aren't for me.

                                Having read a number of reviews I ordered the 18-35mm and am pleased with my decision.

                                  Bought this based on the reviews... Have been looking for the right wide zoom for my film Nikon. I haven't used this too much yet, but have found it to be nice and sharp. Autofocus has worked very nicely. Also love that it is relatively lightweight; it doesn't hurt to carry it around as part of my lens kit :-). Have been using this for B&W landscape photos.

                                    this lens is nice, its what i was looking for, and needed, i use it mostly for snowboarding pictures and sometimes my fisheye is just tooo fishy so this is a great alternative.

                                    the only thing is i wish it would have came with a little bag case...but im not crying over it :)

                                      This is a very nice lens for photographing in tight spaces and/or to get good surrounding/environment in your shot.
                                      Crisp, clean and clear, and lightweight. Very good lens, good price.

                                            Comments about Nikon Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D ED-IF Autofocus Lens:

                                            I keep looking at more expensive glass but can't come up with an excuse to replace this lens. The 20-35 is too heavy to lug around all day, the 14-24 won't take filters, and the 16-35 is too long. This was [$] new and has taken great photos over the past 7 years with no problems. Shooting indoors without flash on the D700, with its incredible ISOs, there's no advantage in moving to a faster lens. Here's one lesson in 40 years of shooting: the heavy glass ends up staying in the bag. So I end up asking myself, why pay out well over $1000 for a lens that is hardly optically better, hogs room in the bag, and weighs too much to want to use often? You can knock off points for distortion and sharpness, but this lens deserves five stars for value, performance and quality in its price range.
