Thom's Mini Review: For a lower cost, consumer lens, the new 18-35mm is nothing short of excellent, and a clear step forward from the decent earlier version. Makes a great wide-angle companion for the D600 bodies, but it holds up remarkably well on the D800, too. There's some field curvature that can cause issues if you're not careful in use, but frankly, this lens performs far above the expectations for the price. This is one of those raw Nikon lens bargains. Recommended
