Reviews and Problems with Nikon 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5

A quick-acting zoom for sports or action shooting
8 January 2013
Summary: This lens is a real bargain at under $100. Its best use is for sports and action shooting due to its "push-pull" zoom design, which is quite smooth and qquick. The lens is small enough that it can be carried as an extra lens for this purpose. Colors are bright and flare and ghosting is at a minimum when used with a proper lens hood. It is not up to the latest designs with exotic class, but then neither is the price.
Summary: To begin, this lens has superior image quality. When zooming it stays sharp all the way through. The only disadvantage is the weight. I have an Olympus Pen epl-1 and the lens it difficult to carry with the camera. All in all it is a pretty nice camera.
Summary: Great lens for portait work(105) and wide(35mm) to normal(55mm),not low light(f3.5-4.5) fast but with bounce flash, or VERY steady grip you can shoot 400asa film in moderate light. I also use for night shooting with tripod on B setting 1-inf sec. VERY SHARP good depth of field. Not an ED (f2.8) lens, but close for those on budget.Almost as good as lieca lens for alot less cost.After shooting film for 40 plus years Ive found nothing beats nikkor.
Summary: A great little lens light and sharp images . One thing that was a nice extra was how the macro works just push the button and turn and it makes the lens a very usable closeup . So all in all it is a perfect walking around lens and a very low price.
Quality all the way. That's why you buy Nikkor lenses. No disappointment!

Summary: I have three different brands of zoom lenses within the range from 28mm to 135mm. Which is best? Clearly, this Nikon Nikkor 35mm to 105mm zoom. Crisp, clear focusing is resolved quickly and easily in the split-screen camera prism. Action is smooth, and well damped. Aperture clicks are smooth and solid (no flex in the ring). No other brand of lens measures-up to this level of quality.
Summary: Originally bought to serve as primary lens on a full frame FX DSLR, but have been using it temporarily with a DX (D7000) model. Despite being a older style autofocus lens, I am very impressed with it's relative compact size, zoom range, macro capability, and optical sharpness. While usage requires a little bit more "twiddling" ( i.e. macro and manual-auto switching ) which may not appeal to casual users, overall I would rate this lens is an exceptional value.
