Great Quality Lens

Excerpt: I shoot interiors with this lens and it has been a life saver on some jobs. The glass is very sharp, (Nikon 16-35mm a bit sharper), and has very low distortion and little vignetting. It is well built and reasonably light to carry and has a high quality lens coating to prevent flair as well as close focusing capability. Excellent value for the money and you can achieve pro results.
Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Sharp Glass, Strong Construction, Very low distortion
Excerpt: Landscapes, townscapes, interior of buildings. It is fast-focusing, relatively small and light. The pictures are very good with little CA and excellent bokeh. For the price this is a a great addition. The lens is not a fast one, so if you need it for low light the Tamron maybe better. However this is one of the few lenses at this focal length that has the ability to take filters and is safer with no protruding glass- especially on long trips etc.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Great wide-angle 3rd party lens for Nikon shooters

Summary: Love this lens. Can't afford the Nikon 14-24 and wasn't impressed with the Nikon 16-35 so this was my next choice. I chose it over the Tokina 16-28 because of the front element. This lens can take filters and while Tokina is well built and traditionally a little more heavy, it is lighter than the 16-28 and more balanced. I shoot with a D600 and love using this lens with it. No issues with corner softness or any other negatives review sites try to tell you.
Summary: Love the lens. Working great. But the shipping of it was SUCH a hassle! Someone on Amazon or USPS messed up and didn't fufill the 1 day guaranteed shipping promise. The person who sold it to me went out of his way to solve the problem and get it to me when I needed it. I was really disappointed I couldn't bring it on a trip. But I would definitely work with this person again! Just learning USPS and Amazon isn't as reliable as they always say.
Excerpt: This lens deserves 5 stars mainly because of the excellent performance for the price. I have used the Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 and 16-35mm f/4 on several jobs and they are great and give very sharp images with well controlled vignetting/distrotion. This Tokina 17-35 f/4 has given me beautiful images with very good contrast and color. It is slightly less sharp than those two wides mentioned above.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
