Re: Nikkor 35-70 2.8 / Fashion / Glamour

I just got one last week, planning to use it fr people including models and glamour work. Have not had a chance to use it in a real session, but tests look very promising -- very sharp, but not as harsh as some Nikon lenses.

Mine looks a bit worn but works very smoothly. Probably nicest manual focus of any AF lens I've used. As someone mentioned, the zoom is backwards -- push out for shorter focal length, which may drive me crazy in a real shooting situation. And it is heavy; to me it feels a little awkward on the light D70 body.

For the price, it seems hard to beat -- they seem to sell pretty regularly for under $200 on Ebay.
