Comments | [08/09/07] One of my all time favorites. Still prefer it to the 17-55 f2.8 DX version. Don't think I'll sell it anytime soon. Solid, sharp and extremely close focusing.

Comments | [04/08/05] One of my favorite Nikon lenses. Was my number one pick for journalistic work before I got the 12-24mm AF-S. Still a great lens, now replaced by the 17-55mm AF-S G type. Glad I had the chance to own such a sharp lens.

Comments | [02/22/05] I haven't noticed any softness using this lens on my D2H's. It is sweet-sweet-sweet!! And yes, I do still like to drag out the F5 on occasion, so I refuse to surrender to "DX envy".

Comments | [01/28/05] Not a very sharp lens with the d1x like mentioned before. With film cameras it is great. Focusing is fast and accurate. I would rather have the 17-55 for its focal length, its a much smarter focal length to buy if you are looking for a 17mm (25mm on digital) and I hear it is much sharper

Comments | [04/27/03] Do I NEED this lens for daily digital photography? Yes. Do I LIKE this lens? NO. Combined with a D1x, it back focuses and never seems sharp at 17mm - often times because it's not. And don't even get me started on the flaring. I think this lens is very over-rated, very expensive and a complete pain. I'm even rethinking my program and toying with the idea of switching to a 14mm fixed lens. Can't wait for Nikon to produce a full-frame CCD so I can return to my beloved 24 mm f2.8.

Comments | [12/01/02] Had this lens for a little over a year and its been great. Optically comparable to the prime lenses in its range with very little distortion, it produces beatiful images every time. The tiny minimum focusing distance is excellent, as it opens up a lot of possibilities on its own. While the speed of the AFS motor in this lens is great, the ability to manually take over is its best feature. All around good lens!

Comments | [11/25/02] Nice lens. Very, very quick on AF. Silent as can be. Tack sharp. Watch out for that rear element as it comes out flush with the mounting ring when set to 17 mm. I wind mine in to 35 mm before taking the lens off the body. No negative comments at all on this baby, (ok maybe price).

Comments | [11/25/02] Great lens. Sharp with quick, quick focus. But I had the zoom mechanism let go from the zooming ring once. There was not impact damage to the lens when my repair technician fixed it. One day it worked and the next it was a fixed 35-mm lens. The repairman couldn't explain it from looking at the zoom mechanism. Very weird. It has worked perfectly ever since the repair.
