Excerpt: Not many years ago it would have been pure fancy to propose a £200 lens that featured ED glass, an aspherical element, internal focusing and instant manual intervention in AF mode yet that is...
Conclusion: What can we write in summary? We should congratulate users who have such a great lens, while others, for example, Canon users, are still waiting for an equivalent. When we compare the Nikkor 18-70 mm with the Canon 17-85 IS, the advantage goes to the former. Both of the lenses are sturdy, sharp and have a good autofocus. They both have visible vignetting.
Cons: visible vignetting, especially at the ends of the focal lengths range, high distortion at 18 mm, visible astigmatism
