Very good wide angle

muralir, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: 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. One limitation is if you are positioning people in the foreground with wider angle (like less than 24 mm), you find significant distortion of the subject (barrel).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

Amazing must have lenses...

  • Excerpt: Absolute work of art. A must have for photography professionals. I didn't know what I was missing from my subjects, till I got this lenses. Build quality and picture quality make this unit, worth it. Please note, I got the USA version, and not the cheaper 'gray' version, which is also available for about $ less. The only difference is the warranty.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged
  • Cons: Heavy

Sharper and wider

j. Isham photography, B&H Photo
20 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to replace my 20-35mm super lens from the 90s. It is sharper by a touch, and way wider, with that nice ultra-wide distortion that I like. I can get really really close with this. I didn't measure, but its virtually on top of the subject. And its fast, too. Taking it to Alaska. Bokeh wonderful. I know that's not very helpful. How about--a lovely milky blur?

Best Around

Jeff, B&H Photo
28 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I saved for this lens for years. It replaces the 24mm 2.8 and the 50mm 1.8 for my everyday use. I used both of these lenses nearly every day on three different bodies (starting with film F100) over the course of the past 12 years. They're the cheapest and greatest lenses. For only three times as much money as those two lenses cost you can have the unparalleled 17-35mm. The 17-35mm is simply everything is promises to be: sturdy build, sharp images, fast/quiet autofocus.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Great zoom range, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

A magnificent tool

Chris, B&H Photo
17 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this because i was in need of lenses for the fx format after purchasing my Nikon D610. This great camera requires great lenses. I was using my 32 yr old AIs 28 mm and 35-105mm and my newer70-200 f 2.8 VR1 with greatsuccess, but realy wanted wide angle and AF. This lens seemed the way to go. I tried buying it off of [@]like 3 times used with bad experiences.

Fantastic wide angle lens

Brian S, B&H Photo
4 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Oldie but goodie. Nikon 17-35mm is an awesome wide angle for FX cameras. It built like a tank, something that most of the new zooms lack. Optically, this one is better than newer Nikon 16-35 f/4 but still lags behind famous Nikon 14-24 f/2.8. Contrast and color rendering is absolutely great and this thing is sharp even at f/2.8.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Strong Construction
