Product Description

Developed exclusively for use with Nikon DX Format digital SLR cameras, this lightweight, compact zoom lens is an excellent match for the new Nikon D2H digital SLR camera. The 17-55mm range exceeds 3x zoom to broaden wide angle to medium telephoto photographic possibilities, and the lens maintains fast f/2.8 aperture throughout to make it practical and easy to use. When mounted on any of the Nikon D2H, D1-series or D100 digital SLR cameras, the picture angle is the equivalent to 25.5 to 82.5mm on a 35mm [135] format camera. The range and image quality makes this the lens professionals and advanced enthusiasts will use most with Nikon DX Format digital SLR cameras for shooting portraits and close-ups, as well as nature studies. It also complements the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G IF-ED lens in Nikon s expanding DX Nikkor lens lineup. Nikon established yet stricter evaluation standards for the new lens, and it achieves greater picture resolution as a result. The newly developed optical system employed includes three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that minimize chromatic aberration and three aspherical lenses that minimize distortion. Nikon s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) ensures fast, quiet autofocus. And the nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening provides a rich, natural look to out-of-focus elements. With its useful wide range and high quality performance, this compact, lightweight lens will help win a warm place for the Nikon DX format in the hearts of Digital SLR users.

Buy this lens for the fantastic build quality. The optics are nice and sharp and it's perfectly balanced on my D200. I've treated this lens badly, it's been up mountains with me and to some seriously cold places (Svalbard). I've even slipped and had it smash down on hard rocks taking out a small chip of metal from the casing, the body suffered no dents (besides the chip) and the focusing and zoom rings are still as smooth as the day I brought it, optics unaffected. This lens is built amazingly well and will probably last longer than me.

Without a doubt, this is the best DX mid-range zoom out there. It's expensive, yes. But you get what you pay for: brilliantly sharp optics, even wide open; fantastic bokeh; beautiful colours. Prior to purchasing this, I'd tried out both the Sigma 17-70mm and a few copies of the Tamron 17-50mm. The Sigma comes nowhere near close. The Tamron is fine. However, it doesn't have the sharpness of the Nikon. Nor does it have the wonderful bokeh nor the colour rendition.
The build quality of the Nikon is of professional quality. This thing will last you for years. Yes, it's heavy and built like a tank and is not for the faint hearted after a long trek. And it costs up to three times more than the Tamron (although you can pick up a good copy for around £550 if you look hard enough). But, put this thing onto your Nikon body and it will take it to another level. That is something the Tamron won't do.

Perfect mid-range zoom, balances well on d90 with mb d80, huge improvement over consumer lenses (e.g. 18-200VR), if you can, get one (don't worry about no VR).

Although I would never suggest only having one lens for your camera this one really does do it all and worth every penny of the asking price. Its pin sharp wide open and across all focal lengths.
