As anyone tried the new NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G on the D800. I am looking for lighter weight wide zoom for shooting building exteriors and interiors. I usually shoot at f8-f11. I was hoping that this lens might be sharp enough to the edges, at least at these f stops.

Yes. I have just received mine and did some quick test. Overall is a good lens for the D800, I would not say "spectacular" but for the price is very good. One peculiar thing though is that I had to fine tune it to +20 on the D800 to get the sharpest pictures. But all my lenses had to be fine tuned that much. It's very light but it feels well built.

Here are a few sample pictures I have taken with it:
