Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

A comprehensive and bright wide-angle zoom, the AF-S Zoom-NIKKOR 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED from Nikon is a versatile lens characterized by its constant f/2.8 maximum aperture and advanced design. The optical layout incorporates three aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements, which greatly reduce distortion and aberrations for a high degree of sharpness, clarity, and accurate rendering. A Super Integrated Coating has also been applied to control flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy in harsh lighting and backlit conditions. Additionally, a Silent Wave Motor enables fast, near-silent autofocus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to benefit both stills and video applications.

A wide-angle zoom designed for FX-format sensors, this 17-35mm lens can also be used with DX models where it provides a 25.5-52.5mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance and excellent light transmission throughout the zoom range.
Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

    Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8 reviews

    AF-S Zoom-NIKKOR 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 156.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats out Canon's 16-35 2.8 by far This lens is nothing short of excellent. It is not that heavy that people say and you can put a filter on it. I use it on a D300 (Always) and the D3 when I do commercial shots. You see the quality once you view your first photo. I recently switched to Nikon from Canon and sold all my Canon lenses. With the D300 and D3 i will never look back. Nikon will be the leader again and their lenses were always the best. This is my new full time lens on my D300. It is a 24-52 MM on this camera, since it is NOT a DX lens it can be used on my new D3 as well. I will never buy a DX lens again because Nikon is heading for full frame all the way in years to come.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet NightScape Lens I found this lens to be exactly what I wanted for shooting nightscapes of the Rockies when paired with the D800's ISO capabilities. While I've only been shooting with it for a few weeks, I have been impressed with the focus speed and sharpness and have been able to create simple panos I'm happy with when cropped from the D800. This lens replaced a DX 10-24. I chose this lens over the 14-24 for the ability to attach the polarizer and lack of concern for protection of the front element. So far I'm pleased. Only negative comment was the zoom ring was stiff at the 35mm end out of the box. It seemed to loosen after a few times of use. The case is impressive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great focal length, but be mindful of certain repairs I used this lens daily for 17 years and just replaced it with the exact one, as I've been happy with it as a full time press photographer. The focal length is perfect. The paper purchased three of these in 2000. They ALL went back to the repair shop for stripped out zoom ring issues or AF problems (two within six years and one within nine years). One went back to Nikon three times for a total repair bill of $1,118 and the other two were sent back once each with bills of $636 and $434. I'm not sure if other brands would have held up any better with daily use in all types of weather, extreme temperatures, heavy use, etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens I've read some reviews about how 16-35mm was much more sharper and had some second thoughts. I'm using it on a D800, shooting on a tripod and I see it's perfectly sharp except for the half centimeters on each side. Far end sides don't really concern me because not anything on an image should be sharp on the farthest side. If it does ask yourself what you're doing and recheck your framing. It's bokeh is not so good but it's an ultra wide not portrait lens so who cares? Focusing is really fast and distortion is really low. Its construction is solid and fells tough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Glass for Film or Digital I have owed this lens for 5+ years and have never had a problem or been disappointed in its performance. I have used the lens on an F5, a D1X, and a D2X with excellent results on each. The lens is very sharp, has little or no distortion or CA, and focuses fast and quietly.The lens is a little on the heavy side; but in this lens you definitely get what you paid for! If you are looking for a lens in this focal range seriously consider sending the extra money to get one of Nikons best lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from With this lens you want to shoot all day I like wide close-ups, interior shots, odd angle shots of my canines, Landscapes. This lens works flawlessly with my D700. I live on the Olympic Peninsula, a combination of sea, coastline, farm land, mountains and rainforests. I love this lens, I have had it one month. I think that it is one of the best lenses Nikon produces. When you compare the quality and the price, it is one of the best buys out there. It has given me new wings and enthusiasm. If you own a full-frame digital you really need this lens. Go ahead, Treat yourself, you'll be glad you did.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should Have Bought This Years Ago I use this lens in conjunction with a 14mm f2.8 and 28mm f3.5 PC on my film cameras (F5 and F100) for b/w architectural and landscape work. It is an exceptional lens. Due to the price (it's not cheap) I delayed buying it until recently because I had the Nikon 20-35 which I purchased when it first came out. When I got the 17-35 I did an immediate lens test with the 20-35. The 17-35 was noticeably sharper. Due to the SWM, it focuses instantaneously and silently (which takes some getting used to if you're accustomed to audible auto-focus). I couldn't be more satisfied. Advice: Don't get this lens for use with DX format. Buy the 12-24. I almost forgot: It looks great on my F5!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versitile Lens I love the control this lens allows me to have. I've used it for just about everything from really causal situations to photographing weddings. From the couple of low light situations I've used it in, it has worked very well. It is heavy, but in a nice, substantial way that I would not call a detriment. The full manual controls are tight and not at all cheap feeling like you can get with a lot of non manufacturer or kit lenses. I am really pleased with the sharpness of the lens and cannot wait to use it often. It comes with a really nice rugged hard-case which was a nice bonus for longer-term storage.
