This is a fine example of one of Nikon’s great full frame wide angle lenses. A solid professional lens, with a metal barrel, great optics, mechanics and performance. The AF-S motor shows no signs of squeaking and performs faultlessly every time. This is a ideal lens for all Nikon FX digital and most Nikon film SLRs. It will also work with all Nikon DX bodies. It’s in great cosmetic condition, with only a few minor scuffs to the barrel paint, both front and rear elements are in pristine condition.
