Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G £519, $750
Introduced last year, the 18-35mm is a low-cost wide-angle. Don’t muddle it with the older, inferior 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D.
Another lens capable of focusing close-up, this focuses down to 0.28 metres, giving a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.
77mm filter ring
Despite being a smaller zoom, it has the same filter thread as other popular pro zooms, such as the 24-70mm f/2.8.
Constructed from 12 lens elements in eight groups. There are two extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements.
