New Nikon lens recommendations...
I've had a glut of AirBnB listings come my way so far this year, so considering biting the bullet and getting a wider lens. I'm currently working mostly with the 24-70mm f2.8 on a D800.

I'm looking at the Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Lens and would appreciate any thoughts from people using it, good or bad. And if there are other lenses I should be considering...? I think I have ruled the 14-24mm f2.8 out, on weight and cost.

Ok, so I had polar opposites this morning, four shoots booked for today, once cancelled last night, so down to three this morning.
The first place, turned out to be a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3 sitting room villa - I had it down as one bedroom... so politely explained that a) we needed all morning to do it justice and b) I could only afford to do it if AirBnB agree to pay properly Guest's were booked for 11am, so we've agreed to reschedule.
The next place was rammed full of junk, each room had at least three chairs in, you couldn't move in the lounge, no chance of sitting down, the kitchen was piled high with clutter, on the work surfaces, floor, everywhere. The owner was a little mad... So I'm not sure if this place is ideal for AirBnB, but will they still pay if I advise them of this? I took the photos and did what I could, but if I turned up to stay there, I would walk  away..!
Fortunately the third place was a dream... I even got a cuppa... ;-)

I haven't had any shoots for about three months, and then last week I received an email from Airbnb saying:

We have noticed that you have not had any Airbnb Listing assignments for some time. In order to make sure jobs are assigned quickly to the nearest active photographer, we have paused your account.

I've emailed back asking why they have done this when that have't sent any listings through, and how to get my account reactivated but not had any response whatsoever… Any thoughts on this..?
