Finally got it back
By H Goot
Comments about Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D IF-ED Camera Lens:
This lens is a great performer. I had been using it throughout the "old ages" film days with my F3, FM, and F100. Loved it then. Moved into the digital age with a D100, D70s, D40, D5100 and D7000. Found the vignetting not to my taste and had to move (and purchase) D series lens to get the look. Lo and behold, my new D600 will be happy to see through this glass, as I have finally get it back from a friend who was shooting film with in (on one of my FM2's) Glad to have it back. Full Frame!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A sleeper lens
from Central Oregon
I would rate this lens 5 stars, except I have to reserve something for the likes of the 85mm f/1.4, 105mm Micro, etc. I didn't care for my 18-55mm kit lens for my D200 (I understand the newer version of that lens is better). I bought this as sort of a poor man's 17-35mm lens. The first think I noticed from actual shooting is that it's very difficult to get this wide lens to flare. The coating is simply amazing. I'm not a big fan of the big front element and flower shade, but I can live with it. This is the lens I leave on my cameras. I've used it with my 35mm Nikons and it is also very good, with a bit of barrel distortion at 18mm, but not bad. I really like the lens, and believe it is one of Nikon's best deals. If you're not a consumer looking for a 10x zoom, then you'll appreciate the performance from the 18-35mm.

Great wide angle zoom for DX cameras
from Midland City, Alabama
I purchased this lens for use on my F-100. It is sharper on my new D-300s because of the crop factor. On a DX camera it becomes a 27mm - 52mm lens. For me this is a great range for a zoom and with ED and IF the price can't be beat. Other internet reviews agree with me.

Solid, affordable glass.
By Wayne in OK
from Norman, OK
Great, light lens that does everything you would want it to. Good detail, to me, from edge to edge at most F-stops. Focuses relatively fast for my purposes (family, landscape, cityscape, art) and is sharp enough for all. Never tried sport with it. My ONLY complaint would that it is not 3.5 across the entire zoom range, or even 2.8, but at this price point I can forgive that.

from Fond du Lac, WI
I purchased this lens several years ago, to go with my D1X. I found the lens to be sharp and crisp providing great colors. I still use this lens today on my D3. I now have a super wide angle lens when I need it. It is small, and light and I always have it in my camera bag. This lens has seen a fair amount of use and it keeps on working without fail. For the money, it is a great value in a wide angle zoom.
I love this lens!!

By monk the artist
from Inglewood, CA
I am a working professional Artist/Photographer for more then 30 years now and I have used nikons for most of that time. I purchased this lens along with a D700 and they are a great combo from ISO 100 to 6400.

Great little lens
from South Carolina
I am retired and my income is not what it was but the shooting goes on. The newer lenses may be better in some ways but the quality and ease of carrying this lens wins for me. I like it a lot.
