Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic walk around lens for DX if you don't mind a bit of weight. A fantastic walk around lens for DX if you don't mind a bit of weight. f/2.8 allows a street photographer more low light opportunity's. It's not that big, or heavy for a serious amateur, but a really good neck strap is required for all day use. Personally I use a smallish camera backpack that can hold my 70-200 f/2.8 and with a few bits of clips and webbing without the need for a neck strap, but one has to be somewhat creative to put the pieces together on the cheap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Main Lens ! I am basically a street photographer. I've used this lens almost exclusively on D7000 for 5 years. It is super sharp and the 2.8 allows low light shooting. It is heavy, no question. But the sharpness, zoom range and 2.8 depth of field are perfect for the pics I make. The one downside I've seen is that the rubber "zoom ring" stretches out over time (I am on #3). It is easily replaced via Nikon or third party. VR? None. But that is not a huge deal in my work. Long lenses, yes. But not this one. I'd probably turn it off based on past experiences with VR anyway. And the $ savings for "old" technology makes up for no VR as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and a great kit-lens replacement for Nikon DX DSLRs. Once you put this on your Nikon DSLR DX body, it will never come off unless you need a wider aperture than f/2.8. The highest retail price on a DX lens is well worth every penny. You have the close-to-similar standard zoom range of 17-55 as the kit lens (18-55mm) that came with your body (unless you got the 18-140mm), but with more bells and whistles in image quality. You can achieve great depths of field (bokeh) to awesome sharp landscape photos at various focal lengths and aperture settings. One of the biggest drawbacks is the weight of the lens. It is definitely heavier than most DX lenses—including the 55-300mm, but no complaints with the quality of photos you're going to get in return. This is definitely my go-to lens in low-light conditions for portraits when a little zoom is needed. I use this lens intermittently between my D5200 and newly added D7200 bodies along with the 35mm f/1.8 prime lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I agree with every other review prior to mine! "There i nothing much else to add, fast focusing, silent, excellent optics. Gathers a lot of light, should be the first lens upgrade (from the 18-55mm f3.5-5.6) of every DX format owner. Pricy but well worth it. It is a heavy lens, but good quality glass is not light. VR (vibration reduction) would be an awesome upgrade to this lens. Mine is attached to a D7100."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you only own one lense - own this one. This lens has been of great use to me in my work as a location scout. It never comes off my DX format Nikon! 17-55mm is a very useful range, perfect for low light interior shots, bokeh-licious portraits, and beautiful landscapes. It focusses quickly and accurately. Note, as a DX dedicated lens I would not recommend using with full frame FX format - vignetting will occur through the entire range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Performer "Considering this lens was released over a decade ago, it's surprising how well it performs on high resolutions bodies today (I use it on a D7100). It's big, tough, and heavy. But it's worth it to hold such a high quality piece of glass. This lens can almost do everything on my D7100. If only it had VR, this would be a 6/5 lens!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tack Sharp This is a must have with your DX SLR compare this to the kit lens and you will throw the kit lens away. It is a professional quality lens and very fast at F2.8. It is my primary portrait lens backed up by a 70 mm to 200mm DX F 2.8 the pair are just about all you would need. It also does a wonderful job for weddings and landscapes. If you haven't purchased this lens yet you have no idea what you are missing!
