The AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED Lens from Nikon is a wide-angle to short telephoto zoom lens specified for use with DX format Nikon DSLR cameras. Its 35mm focal length equivalence is 25.5-82.5mm, enabling a versatile set of perspectives that incorporate most focal lengths used in day-to-day and travel photography. At the wide-angle end it provides an inclusive view useful for landscape vistas, interiors, street shots and group shots of friends and family. The zoom advances to cover standard focal length and short telephoto perspectives, ideal for portraiture and to mildly magnify your subjects. Its constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 provides consistency throughout the zoom range and is effective in low light and allows shallow depth of field control. 

The lens' optical design includes three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements to control chromatic aberration and three aspherical elements to reduce coma and aspherical aberrations. Nikon's Super Integrated Lens Coating improves light transmission, minimizing flare and ghosting. A circular 9-blade diaphragm creates pleasing, natural looking out-of-focus highlights.

An internal focus system lends itself to a compact form factor, provides precise focusing and does not extend or rotate the front elements while focusing. A Silent Wave Motor offers fast and near-silent autofocus action and manual focus override allows for precise manual control even in AF mode. This G-type Nikkor lens is designed with no aperture rings and offers easy operation.

Fast, wide-angle zoom lens for DX format cameras with a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture and a 35mm focal length equivalence of 25.5-82.5mm.
Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements minimize chromatic aberration, provide higher resolution and superior contrast
Three aspherical lens elements minimize distortion, especially at the periphery, for superior optical performance
The Silent Wave Motor for swift autofocusing with superior accuracy and ultra-quiet operation
Internal Focusing design for smoother movement, close focus capability and a barrel that does not extend while focusing
M/A mode allows rapid switching between autofocus and manual even during AF operation, with virtually no time lag
The rounded 9-blade diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural

    From the moment I unboxed this thing of beauty I was in love. I bought it so that I could have the quality I get from my 50 and 35mm primes but with the versatility of a zoom. This met the challenge quite easily. I wish I'd purchased this a few years ago when I bought the 14mm wide angle (which I've now sold to get this one, hehe). It has already replaced my 18-200 kit lens as my everyday lens. It's super fast and the images are amazing. I've used it in the studio quite a bit as well as out and about to include a recent trip to and old abandoned sanitarium in Beelitz, Germany.

    This lens has excellent build quality and the expected weight of a pro level lens. I shoot mostly wedding and family portraiture and this lens does not deliver the sharpness I want. I also own the Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VR lens and it delivers outstanding picture quality. I expected the same from this pro level lens. I tried several different lighting situations and F-Stop ranges on my D300. It just doesn't deliver the quality I want for my images. My copy also tends to backfocus. Everyone seems to really love this lens so I may send it back to Nikon for recalibration and see if that helps. Hopefully, my copy of this lens just needs to be tweaked.

    Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED:

    I read many reviews about this Lens but could't decide to buy OR not to buy. Finally decided to get it. I put it on my New D-7100, took many shoots with it, in day light, clouds, indoor photos, natural light source, group photos etc., in the beginning I compared these pics with the kit lens many time but with many images I saw a big difference of Sharpness because 17-55 is way better than the kit lens 18-105 or 18-55 etc., it is wide angle & f2.8 is real benefit.

    It's pricey & very bulky .75 Kg weight but has an excellent build quality, superior glass, fast & accurate focus, gives sharpness & a real professional look.

    Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED:

    I bought a used on from B&H recently and all I can say is Alleluja! Since I'm sticking with DX, I finally got the lens I've wanted for a long time and it delivers the goods! I've been shooting corporate events and studio portraits for years and I've always used prime lenses. I got tired of carrying two bodies and changing out 3 primes so just before a recent shooting event, I bought the 17-55 and I'm in heaven.....I should not have waited this long. It gives you the sharpness of primes with just enough aperture at 2.8 to get crisp, clean, bright shots without having to constantly scramble as I had to do with primes. I wouldn't even think of a third party lens, this Nikkor is the best, built like a tank, fast focus, just brilliant. Go for it.

    Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED:

    I have owned this lens for about 14 months now, and have taken almost 5000 photos with it. Yes -- it was expensive. Yes -- it is heavy. But the images that this lens produces are remarkable. Sharpness, contrast and color are always excellent. And autofocus is fast and accurate.

    On a recent trip to New Zealand, I carried three lenses. Of the 1100 images that I captured, over 900 were taken using this lens. For landscape and scenery, this is my goto lens. And the extra weight of the lens reflects its rugged construction; I didn't feel as if I needed to be overly conscious of protecting it in crowded shooting situations.

    It is also excellent on special occasions with our twin Granddaughters. It is fast enough that I normally only use flash indoors when I want fill in backlit settings.

    This lens is an excellent example of the old maxim that you get what you pay for. I only wish that Nikon produced a longer DX zoom of similar quality.

            Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED:

            I was looking for a lens that had a decent wide angle but still had some zoom functionality, as well as at least a f/2.8 to use in place of several different lens in my bag. This lens is very nice. It takes great photos. The autofocus is pretty fast, very smooth and pretty pretty accurate. I also like that you can put it in autofocus mode, and still manually focus while in autofocus mode. The one thing I dont like, and Id assume mine isnt defective and its just how this lens works, is that even when you get to the max left and right ranges on the focus, you can keep turning the focus ring infinitely. There is no hard stop at the ends of the focus. Outside of that, this makes for a great general purpose all around versatile lens with great quality. The front glass is beautiful as well. For those that do HDSLR video..the autofocus in video mode is pretty terrible. Like most other lenses I have tried (On a D7000).

            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. Also had flare issues.17-55 has a good range, though I miss 16mm, and that large f2.8 aperture is great in low light. Lens shined when shooting Longwood Gardens Christmas display.Annoying weakness: Distant Landscapes. It's okay, but feel that it should do better. Seen great results with the Zeiss 100mm, but that's not a fair comparison because it's a different focal length. Suspect that the Nikon 24mm and the Zeiss 21mm should outclass the 17-55, but look at the prices & lack of versatility.

              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 ... buy good glass, then buy the camera with the money you have left ... hehehe ...The D7100 is not the best camera made, but it is a very good DX product and has really good features, so I took the new camera out using the Nikon 18-140mm lens that I had at the time and it did a really good job ... pleased with the initial camera trial. Did a class reunion and GKs to the zoo recently with the new 17-55mm f/2.8 and VERY pleased with the results ... several of the class reunion close-up portraits (with my SB700 speedlite) were super and same with the zoo pix ... had a pix of a gorilla and an orangutan that were top-notch ... still think that I need to "learn the lens" and see what works best with it and how it performs with different settings to make all the photos come out like "some" of the photos ... but all are really good and can't wait to get out and tackle more.

              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! Build quality is on par with Nikon's 24-70 mm FX lens.It's overall IQ is almost as good as 24-70 mm f 2.8/D800 combo, almost.

                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. This lens has kept me happy for a long time now. I recently switched to Canon 5D Mark III, so this lens will probably be the only one on my Nikon D300 from now on.

                  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...

                  I bought this lens for replace mi Sigma 17-70 f 2.8-4. I read and study a lot of reviews before purchase the lens. Instead of the sigma the nikkor has great color rendition, it's not the most sharp lens, but the color outpout delivers punch colors. I mounted on a D7100 and they are a great couple, good balanced. This lens is HEAVY, premium build quality. At 55 mm and f2.8 it's soft. At the range of 17 to 45 I think delivers the best results in terms of sharpness, at 17 mm and F2.8 is very sharp.

                  I use this for landscape, travel and general photography. This is an old design, I know, and probably the most expensive dx lens.

                  But it is as sharp as my 35 dx prime and 50 1.8D and has better corner definition. It is sharper across the frame than my 16-85 and 18-140 (though granted without the reach or either). It's bright, contrasty and sharp across the frame from 2.8 on.

                  This is the lens you glue to your D71K.

                      I've only used this lens for 1 week but am very happy with the results. This lens replaced my 18-70 kit lens that came with my old D70 (replaced with a D7100). The lens is very sharp, has very good contrast and focuses very quickly. Being an f2.8 lens it is heavy. That is one price for high quality results.
