Used 17-35mm AFS...stopped down f5.6 >...New Nikon 18-35mm G
That's interesting to read. I own a 17-35, was considering the 18-35 AFS for travel, also maybe to get improved corners at the wide end (17-20mm) when stopped down, though I still happily shoot 17-20mm at f5.6 and beyond. Just wondering what kind of improvement, if any, the 18-35AFS might offer, and the lighter weight and smaller size would be benficial for travel. Would appreciate links to comparisons if they are available.
To the OP, other than primes, I don't think you can get any Nikon UW zoom (other than the 18-35) for new under $1000. All the options (16-35 used, 17-35 used, Tokina 16-28, 18-35, primes) have strengths of their own and without knowing your priorities (size, weight, filters, max aperture, shooting apertures) it would be hard to recommend a particular option. Of course, since you are already happy with the Tokina, you know there's at least one option that satisfies!
