Nikon Nikkor 35-200mm f3.5-4.5 AIS

Summary: I bought my first Nikon 35-200mm f3.5-4.5 AIS manual lens about six years ago, and I have used it and its successors (currently own three) more than any of my other Nikkors since then. It's versatile for travel (though not small or light), pretty sharp for a lens of this vintage and has a reasonably useful macro feature. Start with build: It's built like a tank for the most part.
Overlooked zoom lens is versatile and capable of excellent image quality

Summary: This is an overlooked lens in Nikon's lineup. It's relatively compact, built like a tank, has a fairly useful macro setting (as opposed to some Zoom-Nikkors) and can achieve excellent image quality. CA is kept at an impressive minimum for such a zoom. It's a wonder more people don't use this lens. Why is that? One thing may be the designation of maximum fstop at a variable 3.5-4.5.
Summary: its a great lense..althoughi have the minolta version, its VERY good. the range is OK. its not the best, but it will do if your an amateur taking photos around the house or the city. its a great product and trust me, the magnification is WAY WAY better than the stock lense. i bought my minolta x700 that came with the stock lense and this lense for only 90 dollars since it is used. i loved it overall.
