Lens making is an art - Nikon artisans craft Nikkor optics from the finest materials, taking pride in adding their intellect and technique to bring the world's finest lenses to life. They push the leading edge of lens-making in their effort to provide the "glass" that makes the world's greatest pictures.
AF Nikkor lenses work with Nikon SLRs for optimal performance, even the very latest. The 17-35mm f2.8D ED-IF AF-S Zoom Nikkor Lens is a wide to telephoto 3.5x zoom lens ideal for landscape, full-length portraits, travel and portrait photographs.
With a fast f2.8 maximum aperture at 24mm focal length, it provides a maximum 1:2 reproduction ratio from 35 to 85mm. Hybrid and molded-glass aspherical lens elements provide higher optical performance, while the nine-blade rounded diaphragm achieves a natural blur for out-of-focus elements. Filter attachment does not rotate during focusing or zooming.
