Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S

1960NAS_180
Review Date: Feb 10, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,250.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: If you use Nikon or Canon...just buy it. This lens will stay on your camera 70% of the time. Nothing comes close in this zoom range for film cameras, with digital the 17-50 nikkor comes close..but you are limited to digital. Leica's zoom cannot beat this lens.
Cons:
none

Leica's zoom cannot beat this lens.The best buy in Nikon lineup.
Worth twice of it's price.

Review Date: Feb 10, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: The first lens you should buy if you have Nikon or even Canon. This lens stays on my D2X camera 70% of the time.
Cons:
None

This lens stays on my camera 70% of the time.
I used em all..even Leica cannot beat this lens.
A lot of the Canon folks are buying this lens for their 1DS Mark ll's.
Better than most primes in this range.

Pros: I did use a Canon 1DS and the Markll. The D2X is very close to perfect. Use it for portaits, use it for sports. The color is very accurate,ergonomics fantastic, speed when needed. Coming from using slide film for 25 years, I always hoped a digital camera would someday come close to the look of Kodachrome and Velvia. This camera comes very close ! The 17-35 AFS on this camera is hands down the best wide angle fle on the market. The 400mm 2.8 on a Canon becomes a 600 2.8 on the D2X, or 200 f/2 becomes a 300 f/2. Add that I can use my older manual prime lenses..what else could one ask for ? Try 50mm 1.2 ais on this camera too.
Cons:
No faults.
