Nikon Wide Angle 18-35mm F3.5-4.5D ED IF AF Nikkor Zoom Lens
The Nikkor AF 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D ED was released in 2000 and
at the time it was the only consumer grade ultra-wide angle zoom lens (full
format) by Nikon. Its field-of-view within the APS-C DSLR range is equal to
27-53mm so it can be regarded as some sort of standard zoom. Take away the
expensive brick outhouse build quality and the technology of the Silent Wave
lens but put in as much of the optical quality of the bigger and more expensive
lens as possible within the limitations of the 18-35mm price point. The glass
is where it is at and the 18-35mm is a decent performer.
