Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Overview

Mixing a valuable wide-angle range with a compact and lightweight form factor, the AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED from Nikon is a lens well-suited to travel, landscape, and everyday walk-around shooting. The optical design employs a trio of aspherical elements and a pair of extra-low dispersion elements to control aberrations and distortions in order to realize a high degree of sharpness and clarity. A Super Integrated Coating also suppresses flare and ghosting to increase overall contrast and color rendering when working in backlit and harsh lighting 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 18-35mm lens can also be used with DX models where it provides a 27-52.5mm equivalent focal length 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 seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Reviews

Great wide-angle compromise lens.

By Matt
Rated 4 out of 5

I had my sights set on the 14-24 lens so I could go out and shoot some hopefully eye-popping landscapes, but this is a great lens at less cost. I'm glad I went with it. I'll probably add on a 14mm lens at some point. There's definitely some small distortion around the edges, but this is fixed with a couple of clicks in Lightroom.

Adequate for general-purpose needs

Decent wide-angle zoom,  but not great for bokeh, even wide open... light enough for travel and walking around on vacation.

Aside from this lense being a little slow f4, it fulfills my needs. I'm glad I bought it.

Exactly what you need, most of the time

In my 15 plus years of photography experience, I have hacked my way through a few wide angle zooms. I was lucky enough to find one of these used at B&H last year when I was in NYC. I couldn't help myself, and scratch this off the wish list. Right away I was surprised a with how good it is. I didn't even make it out of the store before it was mounted on my camera. The rest of the trip it stayed on my camera, and the only limitation I felt I had was my antique D80. Over the past 10 months it has been on my camera most all the time. Working with a DX camera makes this a perfect walking around, landscape, architecture, street, and even portrait lens. Just cannot be beat!

This lens is the perfect compliment to my Nikon 28-300. It is light weight and I can go wide when I need to on my d750. Don't need the VR version because I use a tripod.

Great value

This lens offers fantastic performance (sharpness and autofocus speed) at a competitive price. Color contrast is excellent.

One of those 'best buy' Nikkors

One of those great Nikkor bargains that performs well above its pay grade. In comparison with my older D-series version, it has better sharpness (especially in the border and corners) and less distortion.

Compared to the Nikon 24mm 1.8G? I think the 24mm 1.8G is stellar. I use it for landscapes. Anyone switch to the 18-35 3.5-4.5 from the 24mm 1.8G? I know what DxoMark etc tests show...how about the real world? I use a D800E.
Asked by: Dean
When comparing the Nikon 24mm f/1.8 G lens to the 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5 lens, the 24mm is much sharper wide open at 1.8 aperture, than the 18-35mm is at 3.5 aperture. The prime lens will always have less distortion, but when the 18-35mm lens is closed down to 5.6, it features sharpness that compares with the 24mm 1.8.

question

Is this lens grey market or USA? It is not designated on the B&H website.
Asked by: Wayne
In situations where B&H offers both a USA and an imported version of a product, we label each version clearly and explicitly. If a product does not have an indication either way, it is understood to be by default a USA product. In situations where only a USA version is offered it will not be labeled USA.

question

Is this lens weather sealed?
Asked by: Jeff
This is a partially weather sealed lens. There is a rubber gasket on the rear to help keep dust and damp from getting into the lens or camera at the lens mount. However, the rest of the lens does not have weather sealing. Do not panic if a few drops get on it, it will be fine. Just don't leave it out in a heavy rain. That would not be fine.
