Sharper and wider

j. Isham photography, B&H Photo
1 week ago
  • 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?
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

A magnificent tool

  • 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.
  • Pros: Creative, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

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

Outstanding glass

Kermit 6, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Have not found anything major to complain about. I was considering the 16-24 zoom but the exposed front element made me nervous. I am very pleased with my decision and find this lens sharp, smooth and comfortable to use hand held or supported.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

The essential wide angle lens

Darren Breen, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: 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. Nikon also makes a 14-24mm lens, but I like the 17-35 because I mostly photograph people, and I often like to use the upper end of my range to avoid excessive wide angle distortion.
