The need was for a rugged lens to photograph horses at indoor and outdoor stables and arenas with digital color and B&W film.. The lens has already taken a solid knock without so much as a scuff. To be certain, the lens has resisted its share of dust and grime, as well. Bokeh is not too terrible when wide open shooting close range, but is well short of the dreamy finish obtained with the Nikkor 70-200mm, or even that satisfying blur obtained with the demure Series E 50mm. For those contemplating filters, UV and ND are fine but CPL is a definite no when using the widest focal length. The focal lock of the 17-35mm is fast, whereas the 16-35mm does a bit of hunting when lighting is dim. When compared against the 16-35mm AF optimized, the 16-35mm appeared to capture sharper corners; but, only until one really scrutinizes the flattened captured images with distortion correction. Further, the center of images from the 17-35mm wide open regularly appeared a touch more crisp than those taken with the 16-35mm wide open with a comparable focal length. Usable image is the end game, and with DxO the final outcome becomes more clear. Even without VR, I have taken some amazingly tack sharp photos, handheld, at f/2.8 with 1/10s exposure.
The built in flash can pose a bit of a problem with this lens.Read more ›
During that time I have had a blast enjoying landscape photography with the combination. The lens is exceedingly sharp --corner to corner-- particularly when stopped down from wide open. I have no use for 'prime' lenses within this focal range anymore.
Indoors the extreme angle-of-view and large aperture have been great for candids and other interior shots. Obviously, 17-35mm is not a desirable focal length for portraits.
Some have complained about corner 'sharpness' wide open, but the depth-of-field at f/2.8 is so shallow on FX that corner sharpness is a non-issue since objects in the corner are unlikely to be within the focal plane of the subject anyway. With the high-ISO performance of the D700, aperture selection is an artistic choice for DOF, not a necessity for low light. Stop the pixel-peeping and just enjoy the lens!
I have also found DxO Optics Pro (Elite) a priceless software tool with this camera/lens combination. I always shoot RAW images and use DxO to convert to TIFF or jpg. DxO includes both the D700 and this lens in their database; the result: noise-free images with perfect optical corrections. Amazing.
Back to the 17-35: Optically, the lens is very good. Images are very sharp on a D700. Images have nice contrast and colors. The lens balances very well in your hand and pairs up nicely with a pro camera body. The focus and zoom rings are smooth and sure, no play. There are many reviews of this lens online that talk about sharpness, vignetting, and distortion, and they are pretty spot on, so I won't go into too much detail on that here, but the lens is built to pro quality standards and you get what you pay for. I wouldn't use this lens on a DX camera, because it won't be a wide anlge lens anymore.
The autofocus is silent and fast, similar in quality to the 14-24 and 24-70, which I also own. There are some reviews out there from people who have experienced an AF squeaking or grinding noise when autofocusing the lens. I'm happy to say that there are no signs of that on the copy I received from Amazon. Maybe Nikon resolved this issue with later production lenses? Time will tell.
I have owned this lens for about 5 months now and it is a very good, reliable lens.Read more ›

excellent lens for the money, very solid with smooth zooming operationPublished 12 months ago by Darrel Bartell
Optically excellent. I'm coming from the crappy 28-100mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens from 2002. If your sample has the squeak it's really annoying. Oh, well. Read morePublished 12 months ago by sparty
