Pros: Image quality (incredible warm and right colors). Fastest and precise AF. Compactness. Universality. Price!!

Cons: Sometimes, perhaps, sharpness... But it's ambiguous. In practice, there are many factors that affect. Remember, it is old and it does not have an image stabilization. It can give a very good sharpness in many situations. Just look at shots, presented here, to see the differences, indeed.

Opinion: Absolutely strong! Totally one of the best from Nikon, at least by price/quality. 'Gray horse' that still wins after all'. There is some stable confusion about it: many voices talk about the 'worst Nikon's lens', 'bad reputation', etc. You should understand the differences between versions of AF 35-70, 3.3-4.5 (their about five - mkI, mkll, mkIII ... ). First (1986-1989, all made in Japan, narrow focus ring) is the best version, and is a 'sky and earth', relatively to all subsequent, on many characteristics.

Pros: Versatility, always precise maf, high sharpness

Cons: Ring that rotates during the maf limiting the use of filters (oh yes ..... I play to be a photographer in the environment and I hate spending time at the PC messing up the photos) Slight vignetting on fx below f4.5

Opinion: It is an unfairly mistreated optician.... Very versatile and light excellent for portraits and "reportage" (always talking about amateur level without professional pretensions). I use it on nikon d300 and it does not miss a focus. Excellent sharpness and, even cropped up, remains high... The only flaw, vignette slightly on fx ..... used with open diaphragm, under f4.5 vignetting is present but not excessively annoying (who wants to understand means).... You can find it with 2 years warranty on RCE at ridiculously low prices.... 9 full and highly recommended

Pros: Can be small and comfortable

Cons: Doesn't take nice pictures

Opinion: I was very disappointed by this view: it does not have the quality they say, compared to the brothers of the same years is poor. It should not cost more than 30 euros because it is not worth more. If you are looking for the quality of those years the real jump is the 28-105 af macro. For an absolute performance I recommend the fixed 50mm of the 80s or early 90s, with that you will have three times the resolution and a nice bokeh.

Pros: Nice to see and use, compact, has the aperture ring, you do a bit ' of everything, possesses the quiet rendition and beautiful colors of the AF-D, plastic construction but very solid, manual focus beautiful fluid.

Cons: Eye to the slow diaphragm x old oil.

Opinion: I do not feel to criticize him: Nice to use and see (for me) is in the pocket of the jacket and is convenient for transport, just do not rub the sun in his face and does his job, at most you put a polarizer. A machine with the AF motor is mandatory. Thanks to his bad reputation they pull him around for two bucks, and if you break it..... Take another one now, however it is easy to disassemble. Note: It has a known defect that consists of the slow return of the diaphragm from 32 to 3.3, this implies a constant overexposure if you use closed. It easily resolves by dismantling and cleaning the diaphragm with pure IPA, or by hacking the diaphragm lever for 5 minutes by opening and closing the blades. It should be enough to restore fluidity to the old oil permanently.

Pros: compactness

Cons: contrast and sharpness, in practice everything

Opinion: It was only temporarily my basic lens when I made the switch from Olympus to Nikon AF. It was winter and the lights of the Po Valley at that time are not the best to see how it goes, because they already lack contrast for natural weather conditions. The fact is that the comparison with my old fixed optics OM, moreover selected for their quality, was disastrous (and we would miss ...); the funny aspect is that, due to known psychological mechanisms, infatuated by the novelty of autofocus I spoke with full satisfaction and absolute lack of objectivity. Actually, not long afterwards, I was able to re-establish myself and realized how the images were generally flat and dull; then I was handed the 35-70 f2.8 that I had ordered and life changed immediately. Of course, as a comparison it was not correct, but the differences were abysmal. Wasted pictures and film; an experience to forget, finally I defined an expensive cap for the camera body. The ridiculous thing & eserious; that was the optics supplied for those who then bought a Nikon AF (F801), as if it were possible to retain a photo amateur by proposing optics of this kind is still a mystery hidden in the head of the marketing staff of Nikon. Rating 4
