The Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8 AF-S, first introduced in 1999, is Nikon’s basic wide-angle professional zoom for film and FX Digital. The 17-35mm is sharp at all apertures, has great ghost resistance, less falloff than fixed lenses, only moderate distortion and it’s built like a tank. Unlike many zooms, it’s made of solid metal.

This AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED lens is an ultra-wide-angle rectilinear zoom lens with a range of professional-level features that yield overall superior performance. In addition to providing the shortest close-focusing distance in its class 0.28m (0.9 ft.) throughout the entire zoom range, the lens also features a fast constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 at all focal lengths. It is ideal for photojournalism and general professional-level photographic needs.
