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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Summary: This lens has been of great use to me in my work as a location scout. It never comes off my DX format Nikon! 17-55mm is a very useful range, perfect for low light interior shots, bokeh-licious portraits, and beautiful landscapes. It focusses quickly and accurately. Note, as a DX dedicated lens I would not recommend using with full frame FX format - vignetting will occur through the entire range.
Excerpt: I bought this lens for replace mi Sigma 17-70 f 2.8-4. I read and study a lot of reviews before purchase the lens. Instead of the sigma the nikkor has great color rendition, it's not the most sharp lens, but the color outpout delivers punch colors. I mounted on a D7100 and they are a great couple, good balanced. This lens is HEAVY, premium build quality. At 55 mm and f2.8 it's soft.
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
Excerpt: There is something look like part of a hair inside the lens. It's in the upper left corner.It does not affect the quality of the picture at all, but it is just annoying. I was thinking about returning it but hate the hassle of shipping back and pay for shipping. I guess I'll just keep it.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
