Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element reduces chromatic aberrations providing superior optical performance, even at maximum aperture.

Nikon D-type design provides precise distance information for flash and ambient light exposure processes.

Focus distance of 1 foot to infinity is ideal for landscape, snapshot, candid, environmental, close-up and full length portrait photography.

Internal Focusing (IF) design for smooth and fast auto focus.

Great lens I purchased this lens several years ago, to go with my D1X. I found the lens to be sharp and crisp providing great colors. I still use this lens today on my D3. I now have a super wide angle lens when I need it. It is small, and light and I always have it in my camera bag. This lens has seen a fair amount of use and it keeps on working without fail. For the money, it is a great value in a wide angle zoom. July 30, 2010
GREAT LENS I have owned this lens since when I purchased my D50 some 15 years ago. I have never been disappointed with the results that I have received. It's a great lens for twighlight and indoor photos. The price is good for a great, long-lasting lens. July 30, 2010
I love this lens!! This is the standard lens on my F5 and rarely comes off the camera. July 30, 2010
Great Glass I am a working professional Artist/Photographer for more then 30 years now and I have used nikons for most of that time. I purchased this lens along with a D700 and they are a great combo from ISO 100 to 6400. July 28, 2010
A sleeper lens I would rate this lens 5 stars, except I have to reserve something for the likes of the 85mm f/1.4, 105mm Micro, etc. I didn't care for my 18-55mm kit lens for my D200 (I understand the newer version of that lens is better). I bought this as sort of a poor man's 17-35mm lens. The first think I noticed from actual shooting is that it's very difficult to get this wide lens to flare. The coating is simply amazing. I'm not a big fan of the big front element and flower shade, but I can live with it. This is the lens I leave on my cameras. I've used it with my 35mm Nikons and it is also very good, with a bit of barrel distortion at 18mm, but not bad. I really like the lens, and believe it is one of Nikon's best deals. If you're not a consumer looking for a 10x zoom, then you'll appreciate the performance from the 18-35mm. November 10, 2010
Solid, affordable glass. Great, light lens that does everything you would want it to. Good detail, to me, from edge to edge at most F-stops. Focuses relatively fast for my purposes (family, landscape, cityscape, art) and is sharp enough for all. Never tried sport with it. My ONLY complaint would that it is not 3.5 across the entire zoom range, or even 2.8, but at this price point I can forgive that. July 31, 2010
Great little lens I am retired and my income is not what it was but the shooting goes on. The newer lenses may be better in some ways but the quality and ease of carrying this lens wins for me. I like it a lot. July 13, 2010

The lens seems to focus okay in the viewfinder, but the pictures come out dark around the edges and are not crisp.

From what i have gathered i believe it will be compatible however, the auto focus might not work, so one will have to manually focus it. However, is this because the lens itself doesn't provide auto focus or is it due to the incompatibility of the lens and camera?

Answer: 
Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D5100 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

Answer: 
Infinity. I prefer the 24-70 f2.8 Ed II For all around use.You have the same 24mm but you will have a better Portrait lens and more power with the 70mm.But if you want power a 70-200 or 70-300 lens. The lens in a F3.5 is priced for starters. But later on you will Buy the 70-200 f2.8 Ed II. You will not regret buying this lens..I shoot this all the time on my D3 and a 24-70m F2.8 on the other Nikon D3.. My Next Trip in August is Alaska 7 day Trip....I need Gris Pics
