Product Details

  • F-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/3.5 to f/29
  • Three Aspherical and Two ED Elements
  • Super Integrated Coating
  • Silent Wave Motor AF System

A versatile, affordable wide-angle to standard view FX-format zoom lens.

Now you can cover the highly useful zoom range of 18mm to 35mm (27–52.5mm on DX-format cameras) with a great performing full-frame NIKKOR lens that doesn't carry a professional's price tag. Shoot beautiful wide-angle architectural shots, landscapes, group portraits and more; then zoom in for a natural field of view that is slightly wider than what we see with our eyes. You can even get as close as 0.92-feet from your subject! And since the AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED is powered by Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing, it's an ideal choice for video applications.

Wide-angle to standard zoom versatility

The AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED is an excellent travel and all-purpose lens. Its 18mm wide-angle perspective brings more of what you see into the frame, ideal for shooting indoors or in close quarters, capturing architecture and landscapes as well as group portraits. But zoom all the way in, and you get a natural 35mm perspective that mimics the field of view of our eyes, ideal for just about any photo or video application.

Ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing

The AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED is powered by Nikon's innovative Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This extraordinary focusing motor uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to spin the lens barrel, resulting in nearly silent and ultra-fast autofocusing. If you want to override the AF system, simply take control of the focusing ring—M/A mode enables a seamless transition between auto and manual focusing.

Nikon lens technologies for consistently stunning images

Nikon's innovations in optical design and lens technology have paved the way for more affordable high-performance lenses like the AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED. Two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements produce superior sharpness and colour correction, and three Aspherical Lens (AS) elements virtually eliminate certain types of aberration. A rounded 7-blade diaphragm produces softer, more natural backgrounds, and Internal Focusing (IF) keeps the lens compact and lightweight.

  • Silent Wave Motor:  AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.
  • M/A:  Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
  • AS:  AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.
  • Super Integrated Coating:  Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
  • ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass:   An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
  • IF Lens:   A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Nikon offers a surprisingly large number of lenses that start at 18mm; 18-55mm, 18-105mm, 18-140mm, 18-200mm and 18-300mm; but despite having the smallest zoom range the 18-35mm version is the best lens overall.

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED is a surprisingly lightweight full-frame ultrawide-to-wide zoom lens that delivers a very good performance in the optical department. Centre sharpness is excellent throughout the zoom range, and corner sharpness is also better than expected, especially at...

LensTip.com

The Nikkor AF-S 18–35 mm f/3.5–4.5G ED is certainly an interesting lens. Nikon didn’t go over the top with its price so even the owners of the cheapest full frame reflex cameras can be tempted by it.

ePHOTOzine

Based on sharpness alone, this is a great lens, at a reasonable introductory price from Nikon. Sharpness in the centre of the frame is outstanding throughout the zoom range and CA levels are kept under control.

I bought this lens when I switched from Canon to Nikon. I had been using the Canon 17-40, which I found pretty good. However, once I saw the images this lens was capable of (especially at 18mm) I was thoroughly impressed. It quickly solved my search for a wide lens for landscapes and general use.

I needed this for a relative cheap wide angle solution for my D800. The image quality is very good for the money though its not particularly well built, its very plasticy. If you are not going to be boisterous with it its a very good lens for the money.

I bought this lens after extensive research into wide angle zooms for my D800, and in spite of it being built largely from plastic I have been nothing short of amazed at the results it has produced.

I use it to create some scenic wide angle wedding photos which it's great for in decent light. Lightweight is great as it's not a main lens for me. It's a really nice lens and certainly will be one I use for general photography too.

Having acquired the "old" 18-35mm when I got my D700 and keen to improve on it if possible, I was keen to get this lens. Have just come back from a two week break in France and used it extensively for landscape shots, architectural stuff, and for general shooting I can report that it is a big...

I have used this lens for Landscape and Wedding photography and am amazed at the quality of the image. I used to own the 14-24 but sold it as it was too heavy and such a specialist lens ( I used it at weddings several times but it was not an easy lens to use) and the image from the 18-35 is...

Nikon 18-35mm F3.5 -4.5 - I was deliberating between this lens and the 16-35 F4 for a long while but decided in the end after reading many reviews to purchase on the basis of weight, perceived relative performance and VFM - this lens is super light especially teamed with the D750 for travel and landscapes, okay its not as wide as the 16-35 and is not a constant aperture but it weighs nearly half as much, costs much less, also the resolution, sharpness is very very good , minimal distortion and good saturation .The Variable aperture has not been an issue after all I predominantly use this for landscapes and interior shots where I generally shoot at f8 or smaller anyway so I don't need a large aperture or fixed aperture, The build quality is reasonable, not to pro standards naturally but is perfectly fine - I think this lens is a little gem, underrated probably, and glad I added this to my kit - whats the point of a heavy fixed aperture lens that stays on the shelf or cupboard, when this lightweight wonder mounted on the lightweight D750 makes trekking for landscapes and travel a breeze Highly recommended

Took this on our visit to Berlin and was well impressed with both the sharpness and contrast of the images I got on an FX sensor body. I would have liked a slightly larger zoom range but, at the price!! Excellent. Buy with confidence.
