Don't believe other site's criticism

  • Excerpt: OK, gotta add what others haven't. This is my GO-TO lens for professional video. It works great on a video camera using DX-sized APC chips. It outperforms $10K pro lenses I've used on broadcast cameras. Sure, it doesn't zoom in quite as far, but I rarely find that a limitation. It's ƒ2.8 seems to gather as much light than the ƒ1.4's did on native HDTV broadcast chips. And my favorite part? Tack sharp wide-open, even far into the corners. Time for stills?
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Tack Sharp

  • Summary: This is a must have with your DX SLR compare this to the kit lens and you will throw the kit lens away. It is a professional quality lens and very fast at F2.8. It is my primary portrait lens backed up by a 70 mm to 200mm DX F 2.8 the pair are just about all you would need. It also does a wonderful job for weddings and landscapes. If you haven't purchased this lens yet you have no idea what you are missing!

The best DX lens you can buy!

Giant Sequoia, Adorama
19 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I'm a photo enthusiast. Recently I bought the Nikon D7100 with the kit lens (18-105). Although the kit lens is pretty decent, it's nearly useless in low light situations.<br /><br />So, after trying almost all DX compatible lenses from Nikon, I decided to buy the 17-55. It produces super sharp images, very nice bokeh, and performs very well in low light conditions. This will probably be the only lens I'll ever own. Undoubtedly this is the best lens anyone can buy.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction, Super sharp

Great Lens, although very expensive

Willy, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I suppose if you're looking at this lens, you already know it's expensive. I got it used, so I didn't pay full price, but it still cost almost as much as my D7100. I won't go too into the details on this lens, but it is very sharp, very clear, contrasty, etc. it does way a ton, but on the flip-side it is very solidly built. The main aspect of this lens that I love is that it makes me take better pictures.

Lens Great / Customer Service lacking

fotohwk, Adorama
2 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Being a semi-pro I often rely on the used market and this was my second such purchase from Adorama. The lens itself arrived in exceptional quality with very little wear or markings. Unfortunately, it also arrived without a lens bayonet which I have yet to receive after contacting Adorama support the day after I got it over two weeks ago.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Quiet focus, Rugged
  • Cons: Missing Lens Bayonet
