This Nikon 18-35mm wide-angle zoom has clearly been exceptionally well cared-for and is virtually indistinguishable from a brand-new example. Glass is absolutely flawless; optics clean and clear throughout. AF is smooth and quiet and proved consistently accurate in my testing.
Most important the lens shoots beautifully, producing impressively crisp, contrasty images even when used on modern, high-resolution camera bodies. This is an exceptional example of its type. You will not be disappointed.
Nikon's 18-35mm AF-D has the advantages of being much physically smaller and lighter as well as much less costly than newer AF-S equivalents. Many photographers will consider its durable, older screw-drive focusing mechanism an advantage as well, as the internal focus motors on newer lenses tend to be trouble-prone, especially as they age.
While many examples have been treated indifferently and should likely be avoided, an excellent-condition example such as this is capable of producing excellent image quality and, if treated with care, should continue to do so indefinitely. Included in this listing is the lens with Nikon front and rear lens caps as shown. This is a US-market lens and is consequently eligible for service by Nikon USA if ever required. Please note that this is a screw-drive lens and does need to be used with a camera body that has an internal focus motor in order to retain AF function. Buyers - interested in other Nikon equipment?
