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

  • 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 walk-around lens for the D7100

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.

Perfect all-around lens

  • Excerpt: This lens is perfect when you just want to carry around one incredibly reliable (great in low lighting) lens with the opportunity for both wide angle and close-up shots. I highly recommend it!

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 ...

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!

My Primary since D300 came out

Aaron, B&H Photo
30 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Everything about this lens is great. The focus speed, the weight and DOF from the f2.8, I love it all. I'm a part-time photographer shooting mostly portraits, creative stuff and some event photography. I started with D70s then upgraded to D300. I wanted to buy more lenses but with a cropped sensor camera I really didn't want to spend tons of money on other lenses, if that makes sense. I was waiting on going to Full Frame camera to start purchasing more lenses.

Don't believe other site's criticism

Rustyd100, Adorama
28 April 2014
  • 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?

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this lens

Anthony, B&H Photo
3 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this lens for portraits and landscape. The aperture is fast and the photos are sharp. It's a quiet zoom. A little heavy, but nothing unreasonable. I'd recommend this to anyone with an APS-C sized sensor...
