Nikon offers a surprisingly large number of lenses that start at 18mm; 18-55mm, 18-105mm, 18-140mm, 18-200mm and 18-300mm; but despite having the smallest zoom range the 18-35mm version is the best lens overall.
Full-frame coverage; Impeccable MTF performance; 18mm maximum coverage; Virtually silent AF; Full-time MF option; Lightweight
Modest maximum aperture; Limited 2x zoom range; Fiddly lens hood
The Nikon 18-35/3.5-4.5G is a surprisingly good lens at a reasonable price. Very good center performance is accompanied by good performance in the DX-corners and decent performance in the FX-corners. Stop down to lift performance in the corners of a full-frame 36MP D800 towards good levels.
Good image quality in the DX image-circle., Weather sealing at the lens-mount., Quiet AF operation., Small package., Reasonably priced.
Needs stopping down to f8 to produce good FX-corners., Barrel-distortions at 18mm hard to correct., Slow AF.
Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G AF-S Lens right for you? Learn all you need to know about the Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G AF-S Lens in The-Digital-Picture.com's review!
Announced in January 2013, Nikon’s new full-frame 18–35mm f/3.5–4.5G ED AF-S ($747, street) will undoubtedly soon replace the still-in-stores 18–35mm f/3.5–4.5D IF ED ($610, street).
Handling and features An ultra-wide angle zoom lens for FX format DSLRs covering an ultra-wide field of view without the size, weight or cost of constant aperture f/2.8 or f/4 equivalents. This lens costs around £600 and includes silent focusing with full time manual focus override.
This lens has greatly expanded my walking around photography in NYC. It allows a much more realistic view when close to the intended subject. I'd love a faster lens, but the price on this lens is within my budget. The lens is incredibly sharp.
Durable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Once again, like the 85mm 1.8G, the 50mm 1.8G and the 70-200 f4, Nikon has made a moderately price lens that competes with their own more established, expensive lenses. Though it is lighter weight and does not have a fixed aperture, this lens reminds me of one of my old favorites, the Nikon 17-35...
clarity is great . the hood can be a problem ,it can go on crooked which show up in the photo

not as sharp as i expected. colors are ok, not great. NO VR.
I originally purchased this lens for real estate photography and have ended up using it for much more than that. It is a great wide angle lens however I do regret not investing in the 17-35 f2.8. So far it is held up to all that it has been faced with.
