    Looks like this is a very highly regarded lens, but much older (and apparently discontinued now?) so not commonly reviewed. I've been looking into this lens myself considering the great price and that the new stock might not be around for much longer. I managed to find a bunch of good links to reviews, so I figured I'd put them all in one thread. Enjoy! :smile:

    Thanks man!
     
  4. Ken's is such a ( this area left up to the imagination )! He prefers the 24-85 though he's admits to never using the 35-70.
     
  5. Own it. Love it. Advice to all: buy it.

    Great lens, best lens for the $ that I have ever purchased.
     
  6. Great advice, but perhaps we should all just start saying how bad they are whenever possible, thus dropping the price so we can justify having spares! :smile:

  8. Oops sorry about that, yeah mine just fell apart. It's made of cheap plastic!! And focuses as well as a coke bottle. Yeah that's it, that is my story and I am sticking to it. ;-)

  10. What gets my goat is the crappy push pull design! Sometimes I use it to vacuum the carpet in my car, it's like a super dust sucker! Any night I expect to turn on the TV and see that annoying screaming guy selling the "New" Nikon hand powered Miti-Vac. I think we should launch some kind of class action suit. Don't even get me started on the rotating 62mm front end, what garbage.
