New Nikon 18-35AFS in Hand!


Oh ya baby, B&H came through again, putting the brand new Nikon 18-35AFS in my hands for my Yosemite & Bermuda shoots! I’ve shot a little with it so far and I’m kinda impressed. To be honest with you, more than I thought I would be (that’s because the lens is only $750). I was hesitant to get the lens because of the f/3.5-4.5, being used to my 18AF constant f/2.8 but the corner to corner sharpness so far is impressive. I’ve just begun shooting with it so I’m not ready to say it’s a “gotta have” lens yet, but it’s going in the right direction. My one hesitation right now is the all “composite” lens barrel. That said, the zoom ring is sexy smooth and it attaches to the camera with a solid click. It make the lens weigh a whole lot less than my 18f2.8 but the feel, I’m not so sure. Stay tuned, more to say!

NOTE: Shot all morning with this lens, point blank…I’m blown away by the results! It’s not what I was expecting at all!!!
