I was in the waterscape forecourt of the Petronas Twin Towers, KLCC, with the AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-70mm 1:3.5~4.5 D but realized that the lens was not wide enough for me to pull in both of the twins into a single frame. While planning for another session with another lens that might be able to capture what I wanted, I spent some time at the location and managed to come up with the other images.

The AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-70mm 1:3.5~4.5 D was a new addition to my collection, and it worked rather well mounted on the Nikon F801s. Images were sharp and clear, with good contrast, and look to be a good performer if you are looking for a standard zoom that has a wider front end.

The lens is quite a handler as well, with both focus and zoom control rings being reasonably smooth. This is aside from the front element that rotates during focusing, which makes the use of a polarizing filter rather awkward. Autofocusing is operated by a slotted drive screw operated by the camera.

The AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-70mm 1:3.5~4.5 was also Nikon's first hybrid aspherical lens, has a 9-blade diaphragm, and is compact enough to be used with a camera's built-in flash even at 28mm. The lens feels solid with its good-quality polycarbonate and metal mount construction.
