Item details

This is a classic zoom lens for Nikon mount cameras.

It is specifically a first version Nikon AF NIKKOR 35-70mm f3.3-4.5 lens which is in brilliant all round condition. The optics are excellent with no scratches and there is no sign of fungus or haze inside. There's a couple of dust particles inside but they do not affect the image at all. The exterior of the lens is very good, with general light usage wear and no dents, dings, scratches or damage at all.

The focus ring turns smoothly in manual mode and auto focusing is very accurate. It is a little soft wide open, but from f5.6 onwards it is sharp. The aperture works perfectly and the blades are clean and free of oil. It is a comfortable to use lens weighing 260g.

This Nikon zoom lens comes with its original front lens cap and a new generic rear lens cap. The front lens cap is a bit worn but still attaches securely and has the Nikon logo on. I have some photos taken with this excellent NIKKOR zoom lens on my website: [PLEASE CUT AND PASTE LINK]

This lens has the Nikon F-Mount so can be used on any Nikon camera made after 1959, however on some modern Nikon DSLRs it may not auto focus. You can search online to see the compatibility of this lens with your Nikon camera. It can also be used on some other cameras with the correct adapters. I have used this lens on my Nikon D300 DSLR camera. Everything works perfectly and it takes excellent photographs.

This Nikon 35-70mm lens will be sent well packed and promptly. My postage charges are very fair and I do not make money on shipping. On valuable items such as this I only offer certified/tracked (Certificado) postage to ensure that you receive the item purchased.

I am new to Etsy after having been a seller on eBay (and before that Yahoo Auctions) for many years with a 100% rating of well over 2000 sales. I specialise in cameras, camera lenses and filters and other camera gear, but I will also add other vintage items over time too. Thank you for looking :-)
