  1. Giving it a little workout today. The mail carrier just handed it to me.

    Oil change filter cleaning shot with the 35-70mm. Needed a subject..:smile:


    Some are much sharper than others telling me I was
    the reason for any soft shots.

    Getting to be that time of year in Phoenix. If it's under 100 it's a good day.

    looks good tom!
     
  5. Thanks Andrew. I'm getting used to it. The push pull is different for sure.

    Looks like a winner. This is a great sharp lens. Just be careful shooting into light sources because the one thing it doesn't do well is handle flare.
     
  7. I've read that, this lens is going to be my landscape lens so I'll watch it.

    35-70

    Great lens. I keep it on the D700 all the time.
     
  9. I should have said my hiking lens.

    That's good to hear. Seems I made a good choice.
     
  10. I got one a several months ago and I love it. At a fraction of the cost (and weight) of the 24/28 - 70 AF-S I think it is one of the best deals out there.

    Agreed it is a great lens - as long as you get one without the internal haze problem. I'd much rather have the 35-70 than the 28-105.

    I had one and sold it to get a 28-70, I miss it so much. I loved the weight and the feel of the metal. I even miss the push pull.

    My number 1 lens
     
  15. Mine looks bright and clear inside. It's well used for sure but solid.
    Thanks for all the positive responses. For $200 I think I did pretty good.

    i've been slinging one of these babies as my main lens for 16 years now.

    to paraphrase Mr. Heston of the NRA: the only way you'll get me to relinquish my 35-70/2.8D is to prise it from my cold, dead hands.

    if (heaven forbid) i ever need to claim on my insurance, i'd be looking to get another one of these rather than a 24-70/AFS.

    fyi: the macro function is actually pretty handy.
     
  17. Funny.....I like the attachment you have. haha

    I need to try the macro some more.

  19. If you can deal with a little bit of flare and the limited range then you bought the perfect lens. I paid a little more than twice what you did and I still feel well bought. It's far from perfect wide open but stopped down it's sharp enough to draw blood. Through it's limited range stopped down it's as good as anything, save for flare.
     
  20. I think for hiking trails it's perfect.
