Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8G AF-S DX

DX-17-55_L
Review Date: Oct 9, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,199.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Great vivid colors and sharp, crisp images. Excellant indoor cadid shots even in low lighting with no flash. Easily out performs the 18-200mm.
Cons:
Cost, the most I have ever paid for a lens thus far. Zoom ring is a bit stiff.

I was very hesitate to sell off my Nikon 18-200 VR to buy this lens, however in low light unless the subject is still the VR is worthless. So I after reading the reviews here I decided to take the plunge...and I haven't looked back since! This lens is sharper, has better color, and obviously much faster than the 18-200 VR. Lens does very well for candids and portraits in any lighting. The hood is a bit large, and the lens a bit heavy, however it feels very nice in the hands. I'm hoping the zoom ring will loosen up with more use. I'm glad I opted to sell my 18-200 VR and buy this lens; it's fantastic!
