Nikon 17-55 2.8 Review

“One of the best Nikkor lenses ever built…but Pros and Cons”

nikon nikkor 17-55

I have been using Nikon cameras for 30 years, and their digital SLR’s for the past 5 or so…this is far and away one of the best Nikon lenses I have ever used – amazingly well built, excellent image quality, fast focusing, wonderful glass. The downside is primarily the price — it’s as expensive as a full camera, and the weight — this is a two pound lens. If your budget can accomodate this lens, get it, you will be thrilled. If your budget can not, get the Tamron 17-50 which has similar image quality, weighs less than a pound, and sells for 1/3 the price of this lens. But wow…once you try this lens, you will kick yourself for getting anything lesser….Warning: filter size is 77, so most of your existing filters probably won’t work, and do your self a favor and get yourself an UV filter/lens protector out of the box before you put your fingers on your 1300.00 lens.
