My Favorite Lens

RetiredGuy, B&H Photo
21 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I have owned this lens for about 14 months now, and have taken almost 5000 photos with it. Yes -- it was expensive. Yes -- it is heavy. But the images that this lens produces are remarkable. Sharpness, contrast and color are always excellent. And autofocus is fast and accurate. On a recent trip to New Zealand, I carried three lenses. Of the 1100 images that I captured, over 900 were taken using this lens. For landscape and scenery, this is my goto lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Now that I've had it a while ...

23 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Now that I've had the 17-55mm, f/2.8 a little while, and continue to learn more about shooting different situations, the more results I'm getting from this super piece of glass ... recent shots have been just top notch ... did "Cruisin' on the Coast" in Biloxi and a plantation near home and both sets show that I'm steadily improving ... let the samples say the rest!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Great all around lens

Mushtastic, B&H Photo
7 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I was looking for a lens that had a decent wide angle but still had some zoom functionality, as well as at least a f/2.8 to use in place of several different lens in my bag. This lens is very nice. It takes great photos. The autofocus is pretty fast, very smooth and pretty pretty accurate. I also like that you can put it in autofocus mode, and still manually focus while in autofocus mode.

Great walk-around lens for the D7100

graphitepaddle, B&H Photo
3 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Have had this lens for 10 mos, and there isn't much more than can be said.Tested it against the Nikon 16-85 & Tokina 12-28, looking for a walk-around lens (one that stays on the camera most of the time). The 16-85 lacked the IQ of the 17-55, and having the constant f2.8 was more important than VR. (Which is why I didn't test the Nikon 16-35 f4.)Tokina was missing missing 35mm & low 50's focal lengths, which were very important.

Finally have a real good lens

Siggy, B&H Photo
17 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Upgraded from a Nikon D5100 to a D7100 recently, so it was time to upgrade to a "quality" lens, so after studying reviews, I decided to do the Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8 ED ... Looks like I made the right choice ... I am NOT a pro or even very experienced (yet), but I enjoy photography, so take my review with a grain of salt ... read quite a few reviews from different places before I would sink $ in a lens (cost more than the camera), but I often heard ...
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Ancient, heavy and expensive, but great

zanypoet, B&H Photo
2 July 2014
  • Excerpt: As lens designs go, this thing is probably the most ancient among the Nikon DX line of lenses as well as being the most expensive ($!) and 2nd heaviest (after porcine 18-300 mm lens). Despite seemingly all the negative accolades, I just love what this lens can do in combination with my D7100. D7100's 24mp sensor really brings out the best in this lens. Great color, contrast, and bokeh. Sharp too!
