Boxed and comes with CL-76 case and instruction manual. Nikon’s ultimate wide angle super-zoom covering the full 35mm frame.
The lens was discontinued once after the design of the 14-24mm lens but was resurrected due to massive professional demand for the focal length range and the quality it was delivered with.
The lens, not surprisingly, is listed at £1878 and represents a pinnacle of the “D” type design of wide angle lens, incorporating, as it does, a much sought after aperture ring for the fullest possible control at both camera body and lens ends of the body/lens combination (and thereby the use of accessories such as close-up rings).
The focal length zoom functionality of 17-35 at maximum possible resolution is a winning combination, much in demand and has lead to a scarcity of new examples and long waiting periods.
