Nothing comes close in this zoom range for film cameras, with digital the 17-50 nikkor comes close..but you are limited to digital.Leica's zoom cannot beat this lens.The best buy in Nikon lineup.Worth twice of it's price.
If you use Nikon or Canon...just buy it.This lens will stay on your camera 70% of the time.Nothing comes close in this zoom range for film cameras, with digital the 17-50 nikkor comes close..but you are limited to digital.Leica's zoom cannot beat this lens.
I've owned this lens for over 10 years. Originally used on my F5. While new Nikon technologies have since come about, this is still a fantastic and versatile zoom. Fast f2.8 can help compensate for lack of VR but most may use for landscape use where it will be tripod mounted anyway.
I am a veteran working pro: making my living with still photography and video since 1970's. The Nikkor 17-35 mm f 2.8 is a professional's tool in every way: tough, optically superb, reliable and cheap considering it's value and the fact that you will use it on every job for the next 20 years.
i read a lot of this lens before i got one , its said to be a legendary lens , well , it is sure well built, very good looking , smaller than the 14-24mm , but ...nothing speacial about it , my 18-55 kit lense is equal or better sharp in day light than this , may be it is excellent on film camera...
the way it is built
heavy, soft at 2.8
Very versatile lens that takes great pictures. Great for indoors and large groups. Fast enough to go without the flash in most cases.
This is my "go to" lens - it's on my camera (D850) most of the time. I use it for landscapes and street photography with excellent results even at full aperture. I most recently used it to take existing light shots of a live band at night with great results.
I've been using this lens with my D200, D300, D300S, D3 and now my D850 for a total of 11 years and remain satisfied with its performance. This camera has produced some of my favorite landscape photos as well as making some photos for an interior decorator possible. It's high quality and versatile.
This has become my go to lens at weddings for those tight shots, as well as for the great wide angle shots that give wonderful atmospheric views. Love!
I have been using it with D850 a couple of months now and I am pretty satisfied with its performance, sharpness, colors particularly in landscape. For street photography at 2.8 edges are little soft but from 4.5 and above pretty well performing. Would definitely recommend to others.
This is one of the best wide angle you can get. The reason I settled for this over 14-24 was to ensure all my filters (4x6 & 77mm) to work. When compared to the color and contrast that you can get with 14-24, this one is not as good. But with a little PP you can get it similar results eventually.
I have owned this lens for about 2 1/2 years and it has been the best wide angle lens I have ever used. 17-35mm is a good range whether using the full size FX format or more limited DX format.
