Summary: I tried this lens as a replacement for my Nikon AF 24mm f/2.8 D and I was pleasantly surprised. It's sharper and it has better contrast than the 24mm. It's also very lightweight and compact for a full frame wide angle zoom. I like how this lens handles/feels on a Nikon camera body. Ergonomics are great. Sharpness, color, and contrast are very good. This lens renders like my other AF-S lenses (28mm f/1.8, 35mm f/1.8 and 85mm f/1.8).
Summary: The Nikon 18-35 G is truly a fantastic lens for the money and is easily worth the upgrade over the D. It's optically very close in quality to the much more expensive 16-35 (and basically as fast), although no VR can be an issue if you're doing something like shooting waterscapes or waterfalls handheld. It's much sharper at big apertures than the 18-35 D, and it's build quality also feels far superior.
lightweight, incredible value for super sharp optics

Summary: My headline says it all. Very reasonable for the great optics, from the ones I have compared this lens is one of the sharpest of all the wide zoom lenses by Nikkor (yes there are a few that are very close to this lens, including the professional grade ones, of course). I needed a good lens for architectural photography, and the weight was a great factor here as well.
Summary: I was on the edge of my seat deciding whether to buy this lens, and hoping the reviewers' opinion of "sharp" was the same as mine. I selected it to put on my full-frame DSLR as a functional replacement for my (DX) Tokina 12-24. Since I do mostly architectural work, sharpness is crucial. I've only had it a couple of days so I am not done checking it out, but I did want to report that this puppy is very sharp. I've uploaded two images, one being a 100% crop of the first.
Summary: Light weight, great IQ, I have Nikons 28-70mm f2.8 and it is a great lens but it's very heavy, this lens is a godsend, I can carry it all day, I mostly capture landscapes shots, and not get tired of It's weight. Did I mention the great IQ? Sharp, sharp, and more sharp.
