Pros: Colors, f2.8 to all focal points, robustness/solidity, possibility of transformation into lens "macro" to 35mm, flare.

Cons: Construction defects, sharpness at the edges especially at TA, flare, front lens that rotates in the maf.

Opinion: Slow that networkse images with the most pasty and less contrasted colors, tending to the heat (very pleasant in some cases). The use of circular polarizing filters is not prohibited, they simply need to be recalibrated when moving the maf, especially when the subject's distance from one maf and the next varies greatly. My specimen (non-D version) was prone to lens opacity, diaphragms > 4 the thing was not noticed, but at 2.8 it almost seemed to have a mattifying mask on the rest of the photo that also dampened the colors as well as clearly sharpness. Vulnerability to flare is indeed a problem in some cases but in others it makes the composition non-trivial and absolutely creative. In fact, the flare it generates (especially without a lampshade) is not incisive or said in a word "ugly" (like those lenses that make the sun all in pointed rays), but it leads to a loss of gradual and nuanced contrast. If your specimen does not have the original Hb-1 lampshade you can find it on e-bay, where the original is equal but plastic at 5 degrees, since the originals travel on 30 degrees.

Pros: Price, professional lens, metal, sharp TA, etc...

Cons: Weight and not stabilized

Opinion: After a long time I managed to get one by switching with my D100 plus 50 th in my favor. Brought to clean the lenses because they were matte but with 40 euros I solved. Very satisfied, vintage optics and on D3 and D3s has its own because, also I paired it with the original lampshade and solves many problems in backlight.

Pros: Compact, durable, crisp, bright, high quality/price ratio, fast AF (AF-D version)

Cons: Low flare resistance, limited focal range

Opinion: Bought at less than €200 used, in excellent condition (AF-D version). Old Pro Optics with a construction that communicates solidity and resistance. Zoom mechanism with particular pump and subject to "ingestion" of dust. Rotating front lens, so be careful to use circular polarizers. Between ƒ/2.8 and ƒ/4 detectable chromatic aberration, easily correctable in PP. Fast Autofocus, even if not the same as the current AF-S, and also quite noisy (watch out for videos). Macro functionality without AF, a bit complicated in focus, gives a very soft fuzzy. The tightness on the backlight is very bad, you have to pay attention to the parasitic light and often use a hood to avoid falls of contrast even with minimal lateral illumination. My specimen does not have opacification of the posterior doublet, but it is a common problem to be taken into account for this objective.

Pros: Compact and lightweight for a 2.8, decent AF, Prena ' Evergreen ' opportunity in good condition at a competitive price

Cons: Risk matting around the corner (fortunately not mine)

Opinion: Specific always to be a neocyte then to be taken with the pliers from my point of view (but I also think that the amateur advanced so much or you have certainly already had or points to something vintage of a different budget). I have only a few days this magnificent specimen taken at a very competitive price but especially immaculate. and compact, lightweight, well other than my Sigma art 18-35 that on d7100 and definitely another world like resolution and sharpness (accomplice F 1.8 and its excellent sharpness already at 2.2/2.5). But as colors do not disfigure at all indeed, the 35-70 and slightly warmer, though softer. And anyway usable already TA for close-ups very targeted and to have a good sharp composition you have to climb to other values. Even the pump mechanism (which I had never tried) does not cause difficulties indeed.. And very challenging! I still have not been able to observe the suffering of the flares (although those ' imperfections ' know so much of vintage flavour, perfection sometimes makes a composition cold). Attention to the hood: that you use it on DX or FF there are differences in terms of vignetting. I read that its standard and almost useless and I ordered HB-15 which seems to be the most suitable for DX. It ended with the AF of course noisy as managed by the body but it is discreetly fast and quite precise (certainly nn is so much better than the 18-35 test done also other specimens). Final advice? If you find an excellent specimen free from opacizzaxione take it but nn over 200-220 euros, if you think of doing the deal and then to do it revise, leave it alone.

Pros: Gorgeous sharpness, lens of yesterdays.

Cons: Pump mechanism doesn't make me crazy.

Opinion: I have owned this lens for several years time before handing it in when I had stopped using it. I made a big mistake because even if older did his job in Modino. In addition to my over the years I have used another pair but I have never happened to meet with Matted. Obviously can not compete with the modern 24-70 also because the major excursion of the latter is certainly more appreciable, to any good account for those who had problems of "budget" as can happen, the old 35-70 can largely do a great service.
