bokeh and versatility!

Jon O, Amazon
30 May 2015
  • Summary: This thing is so versatile. I like it just as much as my 16-35. You lose a small amount but you gain more creativity with the extra light gathering abilities of a 2.8. It does tend to have less depth of field at comparable fstops to the 16-35 so you will need to shoot at smaller stops to get the...

Very good wide angle

muralir, B&H Photo
11 December 2014
  • Excerpt: This is one of the best wide angle you can get. The reason I settled for this over 14-24 was to ensure all my filters (4x6 & 77mm) to work. When compared to the color and contrast that you can get with 14-24, this one is not as good. But with a little PP you can get it similar results eventually.

Best Around

Jeff, B&H Photo
28 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I saved for this lens for years. It replaces the 24mm 2.8 and the 50mm 1.8 for my everyday use. I used both of these lenses nearly every day on three different bodies (starting with film F100) over the course of the past 12 years. They're the cheapest and greatest lenses.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Great zoom range, Rugged, Strong Construction

Decent lens but will flare

Ironman Triathlete, Amazon
26 March 2014
  • Summary: Nice lens for video. The only issue I have is that this lens will flare at smaller apertures (f/16..). I did a night time shot in San Francisco and all the lights had nice starbursts but the image had numerous round flares through out the image.

Lived up to it's promise

Adorama
15 March 2014
  • Excerpt: It looks and functions extremely well. Only very slight flaw is with the lens hood.....it's difficult to place properly requiring only a greater attention to its attachment. a very minor complaint for the high quality and great price.

Nice Lens

Nick, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Very nice lens. pictures are sharp. But it is heavy (all good lenses are heavy). somehow I can still see a little bit bulk distortion for the building pictures. I need to try more.

Excellent, but not the best from 17-20mm

Ericdbleagle, B&H Photo
17 August 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a great lens, versitile and top of the line, overall very sharp, fairly well controlled distortion for the wide angles and with the 77mm filter size and zoom range is a great travel photography lense.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Decent lens for landscape work

Justin Smith, Amazon
26 July 2013
  • Summary: I use this all the time on my D800. Just a couple issues I have with this lens. I typically shoot at f/8, which is within the typical sweet-spot range of most lenses. I find that there is significant softness in the corners.

OK lens

UW guy, B&H Photo
14 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Solid lens, built to last. After 100 pics or so, It might be too early to judge but the benefits compared to cheaper DX lenses such as the 16-85mm are not yet obvious (other than in low light). Image quality and precision of focus do not appear to be exceptional... yet.
