Interesting; I've never seen it referred to as "one of the worst lenses Nikon has ever made."

Look at Photozone test for the old 18-35mm.

Thom Hogan generally seemed very favorably disposed toward this lens, ans did Bjorn.

You gotta give those tests some perspective. They were done many, many years ago back when people were shooting film and standards and expectations were much lower than today. Both Hogan and Rørslett say it's not really good, but it's cheap and it'd do ok on a Nikon D1.
