Re: Testing for flare

I have similar results, and I find that it is as good as my Nikon 17-35 2.8

I expect it to be better than the 17-35. I love mine, but the edges are just never sharp on a d800. This new value wide zoom tests up there with the 14-24!! I was mostly disappointed with the choices Nikon made with the 16-35. I don't need vr and I wanted a smaller lens. But I've come close to buying the 16-35 many times to get good edge to edge quality in a range that's more practical than the 14-24. I'd still love it if Nikon made a full, true successor to the 17-35 2.8, but the new one seems excellent optically and the small size, light weight and fair price I could not resist! Won't be able to try mine until next week, can't wait!! Next up? The new Sigma 50 1.4... Such amazing optics coming out these days!
