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

M/A switch for fast transitions from auto focus to manual focus.

Ideal mid-range zoom lens for architecture and portraiture. Fast maximum aperture for shooting in low light.

No power drains when manually focusing.

So versitile! I shoot Glamour/Fashion and this lens in on my camera about 90% of the time. I can shoot with it all day long without having to change lenses and minimal distortion at wide angle allows me to get into some pretty tight spaces to shoot. March 21, 2013
Great edge to edge sharpness and color I've owned a lot of great Nikkor lenses. This one is a step up in sharpness and color. It will be my "go to" lens for 80 % of my photography. I have never seen better 35mm sharpness. Large prints will not be a challenge. The weight is easily managable, as well. June 9, 2011
Great performance for general use. Pin shape optics. Great bokeh. Good focusing. Heavy and bulky for the long haul. May 9, 2011
Stunning. Rock solid,fast, sharp, nice contrasty images. My standerd lens April 15, 2011
cystal pictures very sharp edges, no distortion, very quiet operation, beautiful colors, sharp images April 14, 2011

From 3.2 to 2.8 I get the worst chromatic aberration that I've ever seen. It happens both with backlighting situations as well as on every specular highlight and glare that are in my images. I don't know if this is something wrong with my lens or if anyone else has the same problem.

Answer: 
Yes, I do too! Lots of flare, chromatic aberration. This all started after I got the thing "repaired" for a sticking aperature lever.

Answer: 
This seems like an overload of the cameras sensor photodiodes creating a spill effect into adjacent pixels. Since no real data is present for the pixel, and color is selected and it is generally purplish. When there is an unrealistic contrast, or when some or the entire image is not acceptably exposed. The image will need to be exposed properly to reduce this effect, and that will only occur when exposure is pushed beyond what is normally acceptable. Try re-shooting with a different exposure.

Answer: 
Sounds like a bad focus motor, send it to Nikon service center for evaluation. If it is something simpler than a focus motor you could be compounding the problem by forcing the a/f to work.
