SMOOTH AND TACKY!

I bought this Lens to fill a gap in my Higher performance category lenses.
After reading exhaustive reviews and looking at sample photos on line I decided to go for it.
The close focus pictures blew me away!
Being careful to look out for straight lines near the edges of the photo I was able to capture super tack sharp pics with my Nikon D80. I have been shooting flowers and new growth for a project and the difference between what this lens captured and my 50mm 1.4D lens/24-60 2.8 sigma was worlds apart.
I played with the linear challanges and they are present but barely noticable compared to the other attributes of this lens.
If you want vivid colors this lens is also a strong performer. I tested against the 50mm 1.4 and 35-70mm 2.8 and found better color results in the orange, red and violet/purple color range.
Close focus is excellent and by just stopping down to 4.5 @ 18mm i was able to get a wider depth on the surface of the flower and still maintain a brilliant bokeh around the tulip.
Many others have commented on the merits of this lens and most think the results are great for a mid-range lens.
People are also performance strenghts of this lens.
I was at a Team party and needed to take a few shots of a large group. in horrible shooting conditions I used my portable flash Quantaray XLF- 50 fliped down the Diffuser and zoomed to 18mm.
The results were Great! I took 3 shots total 18mm f3.5, 21mm f4.0, 18mm f5.6.
All three shots were useable from a quality standpoint. The last on is the one they used in the newsletter due to beter sucess with team members posing.
I know reviewers like K. Rockwell think the kit lens can do the job well but I think this lens perform a clear cut above in richness in image quality and beauty on close focus bokeh. Focus is fast and sharp and it performs like you have 5 fixed length lenses all capable performers at there respective lengths. 18,21,24,28,35.
I highly recommend it for Artistic and Group use.

Good wide-angle value for money. Solid Nikon AF quality.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is a great wide-angle solution for photographers on a budget. While Nikon offers wider angle lenses, the prices are substantially higher - out of range for many non-pro shutterbugs. This takes crisp, color-true pictures without visible distortion on the DX format (D200 platform). Light weight - easy to add to the kit bag. Variable aperture works fine for outdoor/landscape work.

Great images for not a lot of money

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Zoom or Prime? Yes, you can get better picture quality using Nikkor 20mm, 24mm, 28mm, and 35mm prime lenses. The difference would be noticeable on fine-grain slide film under a powerful loupe. But for those folks using an FX format Nikon DSLR, the convenience of carrying this lens instead of the other 4 is well worth it UNLESS you intend to print A1 poster-sized wall-art from your digital images. The results from this lens viewed on my 24inch computer screen or my 42inch HDTV screen are much more than acceptable ... they are down-right amazing.
Zooms are still harder to manufacture than primes and we have to expect to sacrifice some resolution and contrast to get all those focal-lengths packed into just one lens. And, yes, it is a wide-angle lens so there is bound to be some distortion of horizontal lines. This lens wasn't designed to photograph them anyway, so just don't. But for sweeping landscapes, shoot with confidence and then kick-back in your livingroom and view great images on your flat-screen TV.

Great Low-Cost Wide Zoom from Nikon!

This winner of a wide zoom is good on a 35mm film body and even better on a DSLR. I bought mine when I was still using an N90s and I've continued with it through F100, F5, D1/H/X and now D2X cameras.

The 18-35mm Nikkor is not as fast, nor is it quite as sharp as it's sibling 17-35mm AF-S. It is, however, still exceptionally sharp with good contrast and low distortion. Focusing is plenty fast even without a built-in silent wave motor and the 18-35 is lightwieght with good handling. Unless you really need the extra 1mm on the wide end, the faster f2.8 aperture, or AF-S focusing speed, at about one third the cost of the 17-35, the 18-35 f3.5-4.5D Nikkor is very hard to beat.

Going wide with FX on a budget

Who doesn't want the 12-24 2.8? well for a fraction of the cost the 18-35 will get the job done for me for now. The slow aperture is made up with the high iso capability of the FX Nikon lineup.
I am impressed with the IQ of this piece of glass - the distortion is kept in check as well. I have yet to see what flaring occurs since its winter and I have yet to shoot it outdoors. I will use this lens in automotive publication for interior, and multiple car shots without hesitation.
