Pros: Great lens. Fast focus and very quiet. Crystal clear.
Cons:
Will vignet with a polarizer at 17mm setting

This is a great lens. Excellent on F5 or D1X. The images are clear and distortion is minimal. This is a lens you'll want to have. It is lighter than
the Nikon 28-70 mm zoom. Worth the price.

Pros: Great optics, fast focus
Cons:
heavy, expensive

Probably my most used lens, especially on the D100 where it's the equivelant of a 24-48 (approx). Excellent color, good edge sharpness on 35mm.

Pros: This is a sharp, with very little distortion or chromatic aberration, or flare. Very fast focus. Built like a tank.
Cons:
Weighs a lot and, like all good things, costs a bit.

Buy this lens. If you end up sorry you did, you will be the first person I have ever heard of.

Pros: Very bright Easy to use Fast focus Superb contrast and image quality
Cons:
None

This is a great lens. Quite possibly the finest lens I have used even at 17mm. It has a lot less distortion than comparable fixed lenses in the 20mm range.

Great for indoor work, groups, scenics, if you are a photojournalist it is almost a must. (depending on your "style") Combine this with the 80-200 2.8 afs and you have a great 2 lens system that covers 95% of what you would need to have coverage for. While this lens is a bit on the heavy side I like the steadiness the weight provides. The weight is comparable if not less than a 17 or 18mm 2.8, 24mm 2.8, and 35 mm 2.8.

A must have!

Pros: Extremely sharp and wonderful contrast. AFS is nearly silent and 2.8 all the way through the range
Cons:
A little heavy. $$$$

This has become the main lens on my Fuji S2 and has performed flawlessly and delivered tack-sharp images every time. In test done against the normal, non-ED zooms there is a definite difference in picture quality.

Even though this costs as $1500, in the end, it is worth it. One could be the most visionistic shooter in the world but without good glass such as this, that vision will always be just slightly dulled.

I'd highly recommend this lens. It works as well on my F5 as on the S2.
