The AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Lens from Nikon is a wide-angle zoom lens that is compatible with both FX and DX-sized image sensors. This lens features a compact, lightweight design making it a highly portable lens that is ideal for travel.

The lens construction integrates three aspherical lens elements to provide a reduction in chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range. Also aiding in the reduction of chromatic aberration is the inclusion of two ED (extra-low dispersion) elements that also provide an increase in image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity. Nikons' multilayer Super Integrated Coating is applied to the lens elements to improve light transmission and reduce ghosting and flare.  

A SWM (Silent Wave Motor) autofocus mechanism provides quiet, precise auto focusing that suit HD video recording as well as photographing fast-paced subject matter. Beside fast autofocus performance, manual override (M/A) is also available for instant switching to manual focus for fine-tuning of focus or for more creative focus placement. Its minimum focus distance is 11" and it provides a 77mm front filter thread.

Compatible with both Nikon FX and DX-sized image sensors, when used on DX format cameras, its 35mm focal length equivalence is 27-52.5mm.
Three aspherical and two ED lens elements help to reduce chromatic aberrations and improve overall image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity.
Silent Wave Motor autofocus mechanism provides quick, quiet and precise auto focusing.
Manual focus override allows instant switching between AF and MF focusing systems for greater control over focus placement and for fine-tuning of focus.
Lightweight, compact design adds to this lens' overall mobility making it an ideal lens for travel applications.

    I rented this lens and was so impressed at how well it performed on my D7100 and D800 I ended up buying it. It's light, very sharp, has good Brokeh for an UWA lens and doesn't get in your way. I fully intended on buying the Nikon 16-35mm f/4 VR having previously owned that great lens but for the difference in weight and price it just didn't make sense to me. This is an exceptional landscape lens and while the 16-35mm has a subtle edge in terms of color it is very heavy and not something I want to lug around all day in the back country. They are both very sharp but I think the 18-35mm edges out the 16-35mm at 18mm and 35mm in terms of sharpness.You can talk all day about distortion and corner to corner sharpness with these UWA lenses but as a Landscape photographer those issues are not field relevant for me. If you need to shoot architecture just take out a second mortgage and get the stellar Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 or a Zeiss UWA and be happy. I have included several sample images, one of Lake Tahoe taken with the 18-35mm on my D7100. The image of the old shack was captured with the 18-35mm on my D800 and shows how well the 18-35mm performs on the 36MP sensor both in terms of sharpness and color.In the end, $ buys allot of gear and I was able to buy a new 18-35mm lens from B&H with a 5 year warranty instead of buying a used 16-35mm. I would highly recommend this lens for the majority of shooters who don't need VR.

    After reading all of the glowing consumer reviews on this lens, my plan was to replace my Tokina 17-35 f 4 lens with this lens. But after comparing this lens side by side to the Tokina I did not see enough performance improvement to replace it. The Tokina is ok and this lens is ok as well but nothing more. In the consumer reviews I saw this Nikon lens compared to the Nikon 70-200 f 4 lens but there is no comparison in my opinion ( I own the 70-200 mm lens). This lens does what it is suppose to do adequately in a smaller, lighter package. I did return the Nikon 18-35mm lens.

      Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Lens:

      After use for over 2 years, I feel it is a worthy purchase. It is relative light, covers wider side of full frame for landscape, decent sharpness from 18-24mm, pretty ugly distortion at widest zoom and not so sharp at 35mm no matter how much you close down. Focus is fast and not reliable.
      So, I put it on D800E w/ my dp2p together when I travel light and not changing lens during shooting.
      It is not good for: stitching, indoor or bad lighting street shoot, low distortion landscape.

        My wife and I just got back from a trip to Santa Fe and Estes Park, CO. I used this lens for some landscape shots as well as interiors of the 100 year old lodge where we stayed. I processed all my raw images with Lightroom. My images were sharp and the distortion at 18mm was correctable. The lens is light and easy to carry. I was very pleased with the results. I had sold my Nikon 16-35 several months ago. for several reasons. I much prefer this one. I've bought from B&H for many years and I'm always pleased with their service.

          Having recently switched to FX format I was looking for a lens that would replace the DX lenses I was using. I love the widest angle of this lens. Shooting great landscapes is so easy and inclusive. It does not have VR, but VR really isn't necessary when shooting wides. The lens is fast and very sharp. Lighter than some comparable zooms and this ensures that it goes with me wherever I shoot.

                  Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Lens:

                  When I was shooting film I owned a Canon 17mm f/4 lens that I just loved. I went digital in 2004 with the Nikon D70 because I had access to Nikon Lenses. Until I purchased this lens in April of 2015 I had not shot with a really wide lens since going digital.

                  I am using this 18-35mm on my Nikon Full Frame D800. I purchased it as I was about to take a trip to Grand Canyon. I used it primarily with autofocus which worked great though not the fastest autofocus. Still faster than I would focus myself by hand. I left my camera in Manual shutter and aperture and adjusted as necessary.

                  The depth of field is fantastic as you would expect. Images looked great at both 18mm and 35mm. At 35mm I was able to use it a bit like a macro, holding it right up against flowers in the canyon. Not the same as a macro but still nice close shots.

                  I have not shot any tests to compare this to other lenses I have but I didn't notice any issues with softness or vignetting around the edges. I have used a Nikon 24-85mm f/2.8-4.0 with this camera and seen quite a bit of softness and vignetting so I was pleased with the results with the 18-35mm.

                  At this point I can say I'm very happy to be back with a great wide lens. If I had anything negative to say it would simply be I wish it was a 17mm. But to be honest I don't know how much that 1mm would change things.

                  I very much loved shooting with this lens both wide open and stopped down.

                        I was going to replace this lens and upgrade to the 16-35 f/4 lens which I purchased, but when I compared the two leses side by side, aperture for aperture the 18-35 was noticeably sharper from edge to edge.
                        Even when stopped down to f/8 and f/11 the 18-35 outperformed the 16-35mm f/4 lens which was returned and my 18-35 lens became the keeper.
                        Outstanding sharp lens and light weight, highly recommend it to anybody.

Others have experienced some vignetting, but I have not personally seen that with this lens. I like that you can also apply a polarizer over the filter with no loss of sharpness. The balance is good on my Nikon D4s and makes for nice combination to handhold.

                          Considering how slow this lens is, I'm a little surprised by how much I like it. I thought it was going to spend a lot more time in the bag, to be honest.
                          But no, I've had it for a few weeks now, and have really enjoyed using it. I've tried it out in several different settings and appreciated it in all of them. While I wished it was a lot faster as it got dark, I can appreciate it for what it is - a very sharp wide angle zoom lens. Minimal vignetting, although I did notice a bit at 18mm.
                          All in all, great for daytime landscape shots.

                            A great lens, especially considering the price. I have added it to my take outside collection. The lens is fast focusing and the ability of manual focus immediately is an added feature. I use it with the D810 for landscapes and interior images. NO need for VR in my opinion the lens is fasdt and the ability of most FX cameras to hadnle higher ISO without noise.

                              Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Lens:

                              Already owning Nikon's 70-200mm f/2.8 VR and 24-70mm f/2.8 I thought I would eventually get the 14-24mm for the "Holy Trinity" package. But the thought of long hikes or street photography with all that weight made me reconsider. I then looked at the 16-35mm f/4 VR, but with the lowlight performance of my new D750, I really didn't see a need for VR. So I tried this 18-35mm and am so glad I did. What distortion there is can be taken care of in Lightroom. It weighs half of what the 16-35mm VR lens weighs, and the build, while not on a par with my pro glass, is more than satisfactory. The proof is in the images, and so far I'm extremely happy, especially considering it costs $ less than the 16-35 mm and $ less than the monster 14-24. And while it can't shoot as wide as the others, it matches what I had with my 12-24 DX (18-36 mm equivalent) on my D300S.

                                  Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Lens:

                                  I rented this lens and was so impressed at how well it performed on my D7100 and D800 I ended up buying it. It's light, very sharp, has good Brokeh for an UWA lens and doesn't get in your way. I fully intended on buying the Nikon 16-35mm f/4 VR having previously owned that great lens but for the difference in weight and price it just didn't make sense to me. This is an exceptional landscape lens and while the 16-35mm has a subtle edge in terms of color it is very heavy and not something I want to lug around all day in the back country. They are both very sharp but I think the 18-35mm edges out the 16-35mm at 18mm and 35mm in terms of sharpness.You can talk all day about distortion and corner to corner sharpness with these UWA lenses but as a Landscape photographer those issues are not field relevant for me. If you need to shoot architecture just take out a second mortgage and get the stellar Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 or a Zeiss UWA and be happy. I have included several sample images, one of Lake Tahoe taken with the 18-35mm on my D7100. The image of the old shack was captured with the 18-35mm on my D800 and shows how well the 18-35mm performs on the 36MP sensor both in terms of sharpness and color.In the end, $ buys allot of gear and I was able to buy a new 18-35mm lens from B&H with a 5 year warranty instead of buying a used 16-35mm. I would highly recommend this lens for the majority of shooters who don't need VR.

                                    With all due respect to those giving this lens 5 stars on a full frame, they must not be that discerning. This lens rates 5 stars on a crop sensor, 4 stars on full frame. I check lens sharpness by photographing antique bricks, and do so at four different aperatures and different focal lengths. On the D600, full frame, the corners are quite soft wide open. Corners sharpen to acceptable limits at f/7. The center of the image is tack sharp even wide open. So, here's the recommendation; be prepared to throw away the corners and crop the image into a 4:3 format when using this lens on a full frame sensor, particularly wide open. Selective sharpening on the corners at even critical aperture would be needed if one desires to print the entire capture on full frame. At critical aperture, it's not bad, but not entirely sharp from center to corner. On a crop sensor, it's stellar. There's an expected amount of barrel distortion, but it's a super wide. VERY LIGHTWEIGHT. Again, great on a crop sensor. Falls short with some corner softness on a full frame sensor.

                                    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Lens:

                                    Do not be quick to judge this lens by its cheap price tag and lightweight, you really have to try it out to know what's what. After switching to Nikon from Canon half a year ago, I decided to get a 16-35mm f/4 VR from a local store, since it still has gold ring and great build quality + VR compare to the 14-24mm (which I can't use b/c I need to use filter). But that particular 16-35mm had soft corners and overall image isn't very pleasing unless you shoot small aperture all the time. I got one from BHphotos as well to try out, and it was a little better but still nothing compare to the image quality I had with my 17-40mm on my Canon 5D. So I returned both the 16-35mm VR. I didn't want to get the 17-35mm Nikon because of the older optical technology, and the Tokina 17-35mm doesn't take Lee filter adapters. I couldn't find a proper ultra wide zoom until I read about the "brand new" 18-35mm G lens, which didn't get much press because most people looks at its price tag and assumed it's a cheap consumer level lens. I read DXOmark scores on the 18-35mm and turns out it's pretty good. So I bought one, and it really blew my mind. I dare say this is the sharpest Nikon ultra wide other than the 14-24mm, way better than the popular 16-35mm and 17-35mm Nikon lenses. Compare to my old Canon system wide angles, I think this 18-35mm G owns Canon's 17-40mm and 16-35mm as well. It's sharp from corner to corner between 18-28mm (the range I care most about), and it takes filters. I couldn't be happier for picking this pocket rocket lightweight super performance lens !!!!
