Nikon 36-72mm f/3.5 Series-E Review
Sep 16, 2012

After a few weeks of shooting with this pancake zoom (well, it's of pancake design, anyway), I have found this little lens to be capable of some great results (especially at the 72mm end). However, flare performance and distortion do a lot to keep me from fully recommending it, even at its cheap $50 price.

C&C welcome, as always. Next up, I'll be working with the 70-210 f/4 Series-E (which, coincidentally, will be the last Series-E lens to review). Not at all compact, but it covers an extremely useful 3x range with a pretty fast aperture. Hopefully it does good wide open. Otherwise, I won't be keeping it for long.
