Nikon AF Nikkor 28-70mm 1:3.5-4.5D Review




Nikon AF Nikkor 28-70mm 1:3.5-4.5D is autofocus zoom lens for Nikon SLR cameras. They were equipped with a Nikon F100 film camera. Subsequently, this lens was replaced by a new one, with the best performance Nikon AF Nikkor 28-105mm 1: 3.5-4.5D.

Nikon AF Nikkor 28-70mm 1:3.5-4.5D Handling and Mechanics

The lens has a compact size. That's what it is comfortable. Especially if you install it on full-frame cameras. The lens is designed in the style of MKII Nikon lens versions.

On the barrel is placed the zoom ring, a width of about 1.4 cm. Closer to the front element is a manual focus ring, 1 cm wide.

The focus ring is rotated by 135 degrees. Focusing manually is more convenient than Nikon AF Nikkor 28-105mm 1:3.5-4.5D.

But in general, the lens is still used for autofocus. Autofocus will work on cameras with a built-in focus motor on models D70 and D7000 and over and over. For younger models, autofocus will not work. Focus speed is average. On the Nikon D80, autofocus accuracy is not bad, but still, there are mistakes, not often.

When focusing, the front lens rotates, and the front part of the lens extends about 1.5 cm.

While zooming, the front element does not rotate but put forward. On the focal length of 28 mm, it looks 2 cm, at 50 mm and not peeking at 70 mm peeps 0.5 cm.

Also, the rear element moves when zooming.

Aperture when zooming varies nonlinearly. Here is a table:

31mm f/ 3.8
38mm f/ 4
48mm f/ 4.2
55mm f/ 4.5

 

Next to the manual aperture control ring is switch automatic to manual aperture control.

Nikon AF Nikkor 28-70mm 1:3.5-4.5D Sharpness

A wide-open aperture lens has a normal sharpness at all focal lengths. Sharpness is about the same as the kit lens Nikkor 18-55 3.5-5.6. And if you compare with the Nikon AF Nikkor 28-105mm 1:3.5-4.5D, the latter seemed to me sharply.
