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

DX-17-55_L
Review Date: Jun 1, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Build, sharpness, overall useability on a DX format camera
Cons:
price is always negative, but this one will pay for itself quickly.

Stays on the D2X as a catch-all lens.

Would recommend something else for portraits, but it will certainly do, especially if you are not right on top of your clients. Step back once, zoom to about 30mm, then let her rip!

Almost perfect for interior architecturals.

Good color rendition, also.

Too short for sports, but still very versatile, and great for weddings/events/editorial.

Review Date: Apr 27, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $4,400.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Flexibility, absolute resolution, color and image qaulity. Did I mention flexibility?
Cons:
With 80-200 attached, I have to mount it backwards on my bogen geared head. Lost my ten-pin cover the second I got it.

Get this machine, I shoot everything with it. Weddings, concerts, editorial, landscape and architecture, portraits, product, aerial, you name it.

Develop your technique, brothers and sisters, as this one will let you know when you try to slide by.
