Review of the Nikon Zoom-NIKKOR 28~85mm 1:3.5~4.5 Ai-S Lens (28-85mm f/3.5-4.5).
This lens was introduced in 1985 and made until 2005. It cost approximately $550 USD. It has two-touch zoom/focus mechanics. It is fine to use on Nikon DSLR bodies, but being a variable aperture zoom lens, don't expect to easily keep EXIF data accurate.
There is some color fringing with this lens, and there is pronounced barrel distortion on the wide end and like-wise pinchushion distortion on the long end.
This lens has a macro function which goes all the way down to a reproduction ratio of 1:3.4! Sadly, the front element does turn when it is focused and this makes for difficult times when using a polarizer. It has a focus scale.
