PWC ... how do you like your 35-70? I have found to my surprise that it is one of the best lenses I have. Great at 2.8.

Pavel, I love it. Of all the lenses I have, I find the ones I use the most are the 20-35 f2.8 AF-D, 35-70 f2.8 AF-D and the older style (no tripod mount) 80-200 f2.8 AF-D. They are all sharp and clear, built really well and have worked well for a long time. I had purchased them when they first came out and have been using them trouble free ever since. They also work quite well on the D200 and Fuji, so I have not needed to purchase any of the digital lenses.

Heres one I took a while ago..
I don't know if its my best, but I like it..







It was rather dark and hand held at 200mm ISO 1600.. I didn't have a tripod as they aren't allowed inside of the tombs for some reason.. So I propped it against a railing and hoped for the best

I was really surprised how good the shots come through on the not very popular 35-70. Personally I love the push pull, though most prefer two touch.
I am looking at the 20-35 f 2.8 next. I have a 20 f2.8 but to be truthful I've always been underwhelmed by that one (oh well, win some - lose some ) I want to find a good clean copy and am crossing my fingers that I happen to get one as good as the 35-70 in terms of f2.8 performance.
Did you know that supposedly the 20-35 was over 1,600 dollars when new? So now at about $600 or less for a decent used one ... it seem like a decent choice, don't you think?

Sorry to hijack ...

I just got the 35-70 as well and am find it to be an excellant lens! I got it for a wedding I shot this past weekend since I decided to shoot in film and all of my wide-mid gear was in digital format.


This is essentially one photo...



And there is also this one...probably my all time favorite:

Wow... hard to compete with the amazing images posted in here. "Best" is so subjective, but here are three of my humble favs:

D50 + 35/2, f4 1/400








D50 + 35/2, f2 1/20








D50 + Tokina 12-24, 12mm f8 1/60

That leopard is amazing....
I also love the shot of the old lady on the street. Great stuff!

Thanks Pavel. Most of my photos are PJ work on assignments (like 99% of what I posted up there was). For me, its more about have many styles as to not bore myself.

First to Rodolfo: THAT P51 SHOT IS PRICELESS. The plane truly looks like it is longing to be in the air. Reminds me of my lab on lake shore wanting so bad to be out swimming.

Here is one I like from this year. I was going to post this whole series from an ORV rally but decided not to. I hate political threads so I opted out. I like the capitol builiding in the shot. D200 with the 18-70 lens.

I've been a big fan of the 35-70 since buying my first nikon. Dunno about the 20-35 and would like to see your impressions if you find a good one.

As penance for the hijack, here's a couple more shots, one with the 35-70.

Dunno how great this shot is, but I like it a lot and I've sold quite a few copies. It's Detroit's skyline, shot from the Windsor, Canada side of the Detroit River.

Nikon D200 ,Nikkor 35-70mm f/2.8D AF
25s f/11.0 at 44.0mm iso100






Here's one of my favs.

Nikon D200 ,Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED AF DX Fisheye
30s f/14.0 at 10.5mm iso100

And here is one from my D2X. That machine was relentless when it came to nailing focus.

From the leper colony on Molokai. D2X, Sigma 18-50.


Grizzly bear from Woodland Park Zoo. I like the pose, the sharpness, the motion blur in the front paw and most of all, the streaks from the falling rain drops. I don't know if the streaks are visible here, but they look cool in print.

This is some really great work everyone is posting.

Here is one of my grandkids at an outdoor recital, just prior to her performance.

D2x, the common 70-200mm G lens, 100 iso, 1/125 sec, f/4.5.

Pavel, I am sure you will like the 20-35 when you get it. It is a beautiful lens. And if I recall it was about $1635.00 when I bought it so if you can get one for cheap it is well worth it. A really great lens.
