All this time and no thread for the Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8 AF-S G ED? Time to remedy that.

Post your best with Nikon branded cameras and the 17-55mm f/2.8 AF-S G ED.

17-55/2.8 is the best-built Nikkor DX by far, and still a fine performer optically. Pair with a D500 and you have the ultimate event rig...and it's beerproof!

The beerproof part definitely got my interest.

I think these older but solid designs easily get overlooked. I don't own DX lenses but I own the FX cousin to this lens from the same era, the 28-70 2.8 and it still delivers. I have never regretted my decision to keep this over the newer 24-70 designs.

I recently bought a near mint used 17-35 and I am very happy with it. It needed some micro AF though. It works well as two lens/two body combo with the 70-200 F2.8. I give up the 36-69mm range for the utility of a fast dual body set up.

The "Holy Trinity" of the 14-24, 24-70 and 70-200 is ponderous on three bodies. You really don't want to swap the 14-24 around or leave it's lens hood off for very long. The 17-35 is a more "Normal" WA. Really a very well made lens you can be proud of. Even has a F stop ring too.

This thread is about the 17-55mm DX lens however. The 17-35mm although easy to confuse is a full-frame lens

One with the good old D300 and 17-55mm. It was the best gear in the world at the time for me.
