  • Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF DX AF-S Nikkor

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    sharp, great colors, well built
    some copies are bad, short range, big, heavy

    I love this lens. I've had it for 2+ years and it has never let me down. The images are sharp and the colors are saturated. It's worth the money if you demand the best possible images and can live with the range. I often wish I had more range on the long end.

    I tested 3 copies and they varied greatly. One copy was so bad that I could tell from the 1st shot that something was wrong. Buy from a store that allows returns and test your lens soon after you get it.
