    35-70mm Zoom-Nikkor F/3.5 Manual Focus AI Lens

    This is the highly regarded - 72mm filter version

    If you are a fan of Bjorn Rorslett's Naerfoto website

    Here is what he has to say about this lens' performance on Nikon DSLRs:

    On the D2X, very crisp images with saturated colours result, geometric distortion across the frame and along the zooming range is very low, and CA is negligible. However, the propensity for excessive flare and ghosting still is troublesome, and this is the reason I won't rate the 35-70 higher than a healthy 4.5.

    IR: The 35-70 behaved in an exemplary fashion when I tested it for IR. No hot spots or other IR nasties.


    Much smaller than any of the newer FX Nikon zooms and great build quality

    Glass is perfect - been protected by a Tiffen 72mm UV filter that I will include

    Included are both original Nikon caps and the HK-4 Lens Hood in Original ( pretty cool ) Box. The front lens cap is a very cool screw-on metal cap

    Price: $165 includes paypal + conus shipping

    WILL TRADE FOR A GOOD LIGHT METER IN MINT CONDITION - for use with my Mamiya RZ67
