This is a great lens. Nikon has newer lenses that are about the same but this one is made of metal. It is a classic and does exactly what I needed. I'll have it forever.

This thing is so versatile. I like it just as much as my 16-35. You lose a small amount but you gain more creativity with the extra light gathering abilities of a 2.8.

I have been looking for an all-purpose lens to go with my Nikon D300S, and this seems to be the one. It has a good range for both indoor/portraits and outdoor/landscape photography. It's also very good with low light. It's very well built as well, but is a bit on the heavier side.

I shoot a lot of architectural subjects, and this lens has seen a lot of buildings. It stays in my kit today with my digital bodies. It has a fast constant aperture, zoom range from ultra-wide 17mm to moderate-wide 35mm, and has very low distortion.

In my opinion this lens is a better film lens than a digital lens. On film this lens is a "keeper". No complaint about it whatsoever.

the lens served me well for almost 9 years. I've sold it already after a made a lot of money using this lens. everything was perfect, the AF, sharpness, and ergonomic. the sad thing is i dropped it. for years it worked fine, until the AF-S motor start causing the focusing ring stuck a little bit.
