I saw this lens on B&H for almost $1800 but I saw what seems to be the exact same lens on Amazon.com brand new for around $900 so I am thinking this is not the same lens. I did an inquiry and Rockwell had an excellent review but said the lens was introduced in 1999 so I am thinking there may be an older and newer version since I cannot believe Nikon and B&H would still be selling this as a new model.

How would this compare to the 16-35 F4?


Would the older version of this lens, if it is in good shape be a good match for a new D800 as a super wide. I am getting my 800 with the 28-300. I am thinking that this would give me a good low light ultra wide. I also have a 70-200 VI Tamron on order which will give me the fast telephoto when I need low light at the long end.



Any comments on this lens would be appreciated.

Thanks
