Nikon Nikkor 35-70mm F/2.8 D Macro Autofocus Lens {62} Description


The Nikkor 35-70mm f/2.8 D Macro is a professional level medium range autofocus zoom lens for Nikon film and digital cameras. Even with it's modest conservative zoom range the lens has a surprising amount of heft due to the large amount of glass used to obtain the fast f/2.8 maximum aperture while still delivering excellent quality images. The physical construction is also robust, having been designed for the rigors of professional use. It's a good well made general purpose lens for both film and full frame digital cameras.

The Nikon Nikkor 35-70mm f/2.8 D Macro was first released in 1992 as an update to the non-D Type Nikkor 35-70mm f/2.8 Macro. Both models have identical optics but this newer version has a simplified aperture lock mechanism and features a D chip that conveys distance information to compatible cameras for more accurate TTL flash exposure metering.
