Summary: Being a Real Estate agent, photos for listings that appear on the internet have to be perfect and make the rooms and surrounding area's look great. This lens allowed me to create better looking shots with a more panoramic view, and capture all the features of a room in a single shot. Money well spent.
Summary: It's sharp, wonderful, and the perfect wideness for what I need! Especially great if you have a full frame camera, but it will work on the smaller sensor cameras as well. The fixed focal length lenses are all I use because they focus faster and are much sharper than zoom lenses.
Summary: I was looking for a small, light, fast, prime lens for my Nikon D7100 and, after some research, this seemed to be the best option available. The seller answered all my questions, the price was very fair and shipment was right on time (actually, even quicker than I'd anticipated.) The lens is absolutely in" like new" condition and has become my go-to lens for moderate wide angle work (30mm equivalent on the D7100.
Summary: I got it for my D600, I'm really happy about it. Eventhough is a ultrawide angle doesn't distord much, I'm an ameteur photographer who usually takes landscapes and go into parties/events - on both scenarios it have live up to the expectations. the fast aperture helps a lot during night events and is so small that doesn't intimidate the crowd!
Summary: I Bought this lens quite a while ago, but i got to test this piece of glass with my Nikon D800 a week ago in snow, and wide angle beautiful Valleys of Pakistan like Kalam and Matiltan in December. Its a PRO. Its a MASTERPIECE, Ideal for TIME-LAPSES. Precise Detail with ignorable Distortion. You gotta have it. One who doesn't own it, is not a Nature Photographer.
Summary: I got the lens for about a year now. Really like it. Have enough wide range for group picture in a not so large room and it is a fast lens too. This lens compliments my 28-300 f3.5-4.0 telelens.
Sharpness of a prime lens with the convenience of a zoom + light weight!

Summary: I bought the Nikkor 20-35mm last year on ebay because I needed an "event" lens as I like to say. I was hired to shoot some special events and a wedding too and all I had for a pro lens was a Nikkor 50mm 1.4....a great, great lens, but really difficult to shoot an entire event with. I shopped ebay for a Nikkor pro f/2.8 zoom. I have a DX Nikon and the first lens I thought of was the 17-55mm, a monster lens with a hefty hefty price...but it's a helluva lens.
Summary: I bought this lens because I found myself sometimes needing to shoot wider than the 35mm prime lens that I had would allow...but not often enough to justify buying a 20 or 24mm prime lens to be used only occasionally. I chose this lens over the Nikon's newer 17-35mm SW because it is just as fast, just as sharp, a great deal lighter, less than half the price (even used), and uses real glass in the aspherical elements instead of the cheaper-to-produce molded and glued...
