28-105D Specification Inconsistencies??
I'm looking around for the best deal on the 28-105D right now, and am finding that different sites list different specs on the lens. Here are the specs in question:
- Filter size: Nikonusa.com and photoalley.com list the filter/attachment size as 52mm, yet B&H lists it as 62mm.
- Lens dimensions: Same site references, listing 2.8 x 3.2 inches, and 2.9 x 3.6 inches, respectively.
I certainly don't want to be buying the wrong lens! Also, if anyone has any comparison/technical information on this lens versus the Tamron 24-135, please let me know. That lens has turned me on because of it's range.

Lars, Lars, Lars,
Firstly, BH is pretty accurate with their listings: that may be why they cost a bit more than everyone else (most likely worth it). This lens is a 62mm.
Here is a site that rates lenses fairlyhttp://www.photozone.de/easytxt.htm#Zstd
I hope .1 inch or .2 inches don't really make that big a diff. I have seen Nikon "officially" list lenses as different weights and sizes.

Hate to tell but B&H is right.
The AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D IF has a hybrid-type aspherical lens element for minimized distortion; IF (Internal Focusing) technology for fast AF operation; nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening which makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural; lens construction is: 16 elements in 12 groups
Closest focusing: 0.5m/1.5 ft. (0.22m/0.7 ft. with macro setting)
Filter attachment size: 62mm
The hood is the HB-18.
Great lens. I have one and love it.
A general purpose convenient travel lens.
Have a great time
