Excerpt: After use for over 2 years, I feel it is a worthy purchase. It is relative light, covers wider side of full frame for landscape, decent sharpness from 18-24mm, pretty ugly distortion at widest zoom and not so sharp at 35mm no matter how much you close down. Focus is fast and not reliable.
Excerpt: My wife and I just got back from a trip to Santa Fe and Estes Park, CO. I used this lens for some landscape shots as well as interiors of the 100 year old lodge where we stayed. I processed all my raw images with Lightroom. My images were sharp and the distortion at 18mm was correctable.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: Having recently switched to FX format I was looking for a lens that would replace the DX lenses I was using. I love the widest angle of this lens. Shooting great landscapes is so easy and inclusive. It does not have VR, but VR really isn't necessary when shooting wides.
Excerpt: Not being a professional photographer, I looked for a wide angle zoom at an affordable price for my D610. I found it in the Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G. Images are sharp and its light weight makes easy to carry around. I'm very pleased.
Excerpt: Since I don't make a living with photography, I was looking for a reasonably priced, reasonably wide, wide angle zoom lens for landscapes and architecture photos. Sharp, clear photos. My new favorite lens.
Excerpt: When I was shooting film I owned a Canon 17mm f/4 lens that I just loved. I went digital in 2004 with the Nikon D70 because I had access to Nikon Lenses. Until I purchased this lens in April of 2015 I had not shot with a really wide lens since going digital.
