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

DX-17-55_L
Review Date: Jun 13, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Great Boker, Build Quality, Sharpness, Fast Focus, Very Quiet, Very little distortion
Cons:
Price for a DX lens

I read many reviews for the 18-200mm VR and decided to but this with my D300 -Big mistake!!!

There is no comparison between the two. I've had the 17-55mm for less than two weeks and the images so far are a lot sharper, with less distortion. The Boker wide open is fantastic, something the 18-200 just can't achieve.

THe build quality and handling are also superior, no zoom creap here.

As soon as you handle this lens you feel like its going to achieve more and there's no disappointment.

I do feel the lens is overpriced at 830 UK and now I've experienced Nikon Pro lenses for the first time It's looking like the 70-200mm VR is on the cards. So another 1150 on the credit card.
