Excerpt: I got the 17-35mm f2.8 lens back in the F5 era, after I traded in the also excellent 20-35mm, so I must have had it for 20 years. Even with newer lenses, this lens holds its place. Even though I've bought over twenty lenses in my time mostly from B&H this is the one that ends up on my camera most of...
Summary: This lens is just amazing in every way. I bought mine used in excellent condition and it is sharp, fast focusing and has lovely contrast. The bokeh is nice, too. You will get some distortion at 17mm, as can be expected, but it is easily corrected in editing.
Summary: Love this lens, I do (unprofessional but I like to think of them as professional) landscape photos. I am very new and this lens allows me to seem like I've been taking photos for a long time. Couldn't ask for a better starter lens!!!
Summary: This is a fine wide-angle lens that does not get enough publicity or does not receive the requisite popularity it deserves. You always hear about the 14-24mm, the 24-70mm, and even the 16-35mm as the best choices for ultra-wide to medium-wide angle shots.
Excerpt: I was able to find this lens used at a substantial discount. However, it was in excellent shape. This lens is on my camera 50% of the time and my 70-200 VRII the other 50%. You will not be disappointed.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
