Next up.. 70-200VR.
Looks like ramen for a few months...
I've had mine for about three years. Just now coming off the ramen.
It is my most used and useful lens. It doesn't do any one thing in a spectacular fashion but it does pretty much everything very well. It was a last minute decision for me to purchase the 17-55 instead of some others and, as it turns out, it was a great decision. I think you will find it living on your cam.
BTW, it matches up VERY well with the 70-200, just a killer pair.
Excellent! The 17-55mm is on my wish list, I just recently purchased the 70-200mm VR.....it's an awesome piece of glass. It's a heavy piece of gear, but you won't be disappointed with the results.
congratulations Jimmy... and welcome to the Cafe!
It does do one thing great;
It becomes the lens least likely to leave your camera. It is the best lens for events, landscapes, and portraits together. I don't think there is another lens that has the do it all (at a pro level) ability of this bad boy.
I got mine just a couple of months ago with my 70-200. My subs cannot figure out why cash flow is slow
I have along way to go to know it, but I already love it.
I just got mine, and it IS awesome. Congratulations!
I currently have a 28-70mm f/2.8, which is an incredible lens, but I am thinking to trade it for a 17-55mm. What do you think?
I would never give my 28-70 away. It's such a good lens!
If you talk about reach, just get a 12-24 for supplement.
I used to have a 28-70, but sold it and got a 17-55. I never regretted that decision. 17-55 just seems to be a better match for the 1.5x crop factor.
I tried out the 28-70 extensively before deciding on the 17-55. If I was buying for FF the 28-70 would be the choice but I hope my D200 will be around awhile.
For me, the range of the 17-55 is much more useful on the 1.5 crop.
the 17-55 is my walkaround lens now.. you won't be disappointed =)
Depending on what you shoot, you will most likely be glad you did.
Nice choice! It's on my wish list along with a good macro lens.
