Summary: I shoot it a lot and its got great contrast and sharpness. If your leaning out of a helicopter you have to be wary of the 'zoom creep' (shots made on sharp incline or decline) and just 'touch' the zoom when its where you want it.
Excerpt: This lens is sharp from the short to the long end of the zoom range. I have made very sharp large prints, even with the lens at its longest zoom end. This is very unusual for a super zoom. The stabilization of the lens is very effective, I have made sharp photos from a bouncing truck.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Summary: This is my go to lens. I am only a casual photographer, so I want something that does it all. This is a great lens. You can get semi-macro shots, and panaramic ones all with the same lens, and the focus is really sharp. It is a breeze to work with, and very easy on beginners like me.
Summary: I originally bought the Nikon 17-55 2.8 in favor of Nikon glass for my D7000, assuming that Nikon would always be better even if it was older. After much frustration with the quality of that lens (mainly the sharpness and bokeh quality) I returned it and did more research on this lens.
