    Initial Impressions: 1 NIKKOR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens

    I've only had the recently released 1 NIKKOR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 lens a couple days with just a little time to give it a detailed work out. First impressions are very, very good. I love wide angle perspective and until this lens was released, I was frustrated by my V1. Knowing my shooting style, I expect this lens will be frequently used and may become my primary zoom. This lens is roughly equivalent to a 18-35mm SLR lens and has a shiny rather than flat or matte finish. It feels like a professional grade lens. Below are a couple sample images.

    Sharpness and color?

    Close focus? Bokeh? Yes and Yes!!

    One of the sharpest lenses I own in any format. Well worth the price. Quite a few of my images from our summer vacation were made with this lens. You won't regret buying it.

    Rick, it feels like my 16-35 f4, but with less distortion. It's even made of all metal. I have the silver version. Check out the reviews on Youtube. Some of the reviewers call it a "Professional-quality" lens. They're referring to it's IQ and build.

    I'm thinking this would be a better investment than the 10mm 2.8. From what I've read from you folks here and reviews, it looks like the best 3 would be the 6.7-13, 18.5 and 30-110. The only one I have now is the 10-30 (18.5 on the way) and I'm actually surprised by it for it's size!

    You nailed it, but there is another lens that Eduard owns. It's the 10-100mm. I've never seen it, but it's on Nikon's site and I've read a little on it. It looks like a very impressive lens -- Very well built and over $500. I'm wanting Eduard's opinion on it. I'm wondering how it compares to the 30-110mm.

    I like the range, but it looks pretty big! (relative to the rest of the system)

    I just posted a short review of the 10-100. I like it very much.

    Rick make sure you are looking at the non-PD version. It isn't nearly as big as the PD one.
