    Hello !

    I would like to buy a wide angel zoom for two purposes

    - for my Nikon N80 as a strong wide angel, e.g. for landscape
    - for my Fuji S2 Pro to get mor wide angel as with my AF-S 24-85

    At the moment I think of two lenses, a new Nikon 18-35mm vs. a used
    Nikon 2.8 20-35.

    My view at the moment:

    18-35:
    + more wide angel, 28mm (comparable to slide Film) at the S2
    + smaller & lighter
    - not so good image quality at the Fuji S2 Pro (chromatic aberation) ?

    20-35:
    + better image quality (?)
    - less wide angel, 30mm (comparable to slide Film) at the S2
    - heavy and bulky

    What is your opinion/experience with both lenses especially with the S2
    Pro ?

    Thanks from Bremen, Germany

    Hello Holger,
    If 28-30 is wide enough for you either will do, go for the best offer. But why
    a zoom if you allready own the 24-85.. Or go really wide on the S2 with 12-24.
    On the S2 I use a Sigma 14mm and the nikon 17-35, both do very well, but the
    12-24 is tempting.. Oficially Fuji does not support Sigma, but it does work fine.

  3. I bought the Nikkor AF-S 12~24mm f4 G (IF) DX. Use it on my Fuji S2 pro and
    very happy with the results I'm getting. See some pics taken with this
    combo at

    Hi Alan,

    thanks for your pictures - looking really great !

    Have you ever tested the 12-24 on a Nikon Film-SLR in the 18-24mm Range ?

    Rumors say that this should work - but I do not know the quality.

    Thanks

    Holger
