Nikon 35-105mm f3.5 - 4.5 AF

The Nikon AF 35-105mm f3.5-4.5 is an older Nikon standard zoom, which, although it was designed for film, works fine on Nikon digital SLR camera bodies - Apart from the Nikon D40. 

Like all old Nikon lenses it feels great - with solid build quality and a  smooth zooming action - plus it’s a modern two ring design, and has a decent sized manual focus ring. Lots of these are available now on ebay and elsewhere for very modest amounts of money, and I’m sure will work fine for many more years to come.

One downside of all older “standard”  zooms used on Nikon or Fuji DSLR’s is that because of the smaller size of the sensor, what was a wide to short tele zoom is now a standard to medium telephoto - Used with a Nikon digital SLR camera, this lens is equivalent to about 50-160mm on film. I’m not sure that sort of range would have been a big seller -  useful for portraits perhaps.

Anyway how good are the results?
