Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

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.
Two Extra-low dispersion glass elements and three aspherical elements minimize aberrations and Super Integrated Lens Coating reduces ghosting and flare.
Minimum focus distance of 10.8" allows you to get close to your subject and maintain focus and a 9-blade circular diaphragm creates natural looking out-of-focus highlights.

    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 155.
    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 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 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 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.
