This AF-S Zoom-NIKKOR 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED Lens from Nikon is an ultra-wide-angle rectilinear zoom lens with a range of professional-level features that yield overall superior performance. In addition to providing close-focus distance of 10.8" throughout the entire zoom range, the lens also features a fast constant maximum aperture of f/2.8. It is an effective lens for architecture photography, photojournalism, documentary and general photographic applications.
A fast internal focus system does not extend the lens while focusing and the Silent Wave autofocus motor provides smooth and near silent autofocus which is especially important when shooting video. Manual focus override allows for precise control of focus even in AF mode. Two Extra-low Dispersion glass elements reduce chromatic aberrations for ideal colors and high contrast and three aspherical lens elements minimize spherical aberrations. Super Integrated Lens Coating improves light transmission through the lens, reducing ghosting and flare.
Ultra-wide angle zoom lens with 62°-104° angle of view when used on FX format DSLRs. On DX format DSLRs the range is 44° to 79° which is equivalent to a 25.5-52.5mm lens in the 35mm format.
An internal focus system and the Silent Wave Motor enable fast, precise and near-silent autofocus while manual focus override is supported even in AF mode.
