A popular focal-length equivalent in full-frame (18–36mm), this lens offers excellent sharpness, but high distortion numbers at the widest setting: 1.31% barreling. Average close-focus (11.7 inches) and magnification (1:8) numbers.
18-36mm lenses have long been many photographers' standard short zooms for full-frame shooting. Here's the equivalent of that range in a 1.5X 35mm lens factor for small-format digital Nikon SLRs only. Small DX image circle allows compact size with constant aperture.
Handsome satin-black metal with generous, easily grippable, smooth-turning zoom and manual focus rings. Handy switch for manual and autofocus with manual override. Traditional large zoom and distance scale numerals.
