I went into my local camera shop this to order the "free" prints for the month that were included with my D80. I ordered the prints, and made the mistake of looking at the used lens section and reading all of the good comments about the lens on the cafe. They had an AF-D 35-70 sitting on the shelf... A few minutes later, I came home $230 poorer but with a new toy... I took a few sample photos... Here is one: I've never used a push-pull zoom before, and have some questions: Is it normal for the zoom to be reversed, like the 35-70? The 70 is at the short end, which doesn't make a lot of sense to me. There's a metal pin sticking out of the front, right below the text saying "AF Nikkor." Does this serve a purpose?
