Just ordered this one, stay tuned :)

Just received the lens, and did a few snapshots testing it out, nothing in the lines of "scientific" tests. Here is one image:

(image slightly cropped) at 135mm f/8 at 1/40th of a second, ISO 200 Handheld .

Large size jpg as cropped, no reduction in file size:

All this tells me is that using good technique, things will get much better :) More later!


Same construction (visually) as the 35-70mm f/2.8. Metal body, heavy.
Lens barrel rotates and moves in and out when focusing.
Push pull
Focus speed fairly fast (not up to par with AF-S of course).
Min. focus distance approximately 1 foot (304.8mm).

After some research it turns out this lens is officially: Nikon AF Zoom Nikkor 35-135mm f/3.5~4.5s N (MK II) wide-tele zoom lens Introduced: Sept. 1988; Discontinued: 1998. More info may be found here: Mir 35-135N MKII
