I considered that lens a while ago too. I also looked at the 24-85 f/2.8-4 which I believe is cheaper but you sacrifice the wide end and VR for the faster glass and potential use on full frame.

The 2.8-4 sucks. The f/3.5-4.5 is super boss and also AF-S.

I think the VR, price and the sharpness advantage make it worth it over the 17-55 f/2.8, and given how my Sigma 30 acts goofy at times with my D7000 I'm hesitant to get a 3rd-party f/2.8 zoom. I suppose there are the older f/2.8 pro zooms, but they're so heavy and don't go that wide on DX...
Speaking of the 17-55 2.8. I bought one (again) recently

I quite like it. Never managed to try the 16-85 although I'd like to.

The problem is that I miss the convenience of a good zoom for use as a walk-around. I'd love to get a 50 or an 85, but there's times where it's either inconvenient or inappropriate to change lenses and as such a zoom would be ideal.

I didn't use the wide end too often on my 18-55 when I had it, but I was always glad to have it during those times where I wanted the perspective it can create. Hence why I think the 16-85. I'm not keen to buy 3rd-party f/2.8 lenses, so the Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 is definitely out, and the 28-70 f/2.8 is still huge and doesn't really go that wide...

I do find that 30 is pretty good most of the time, and I've been doing panoramas when I need to get more into the frame in a landscape situation. But wider would always be nice to have...

I think I either want VR or a constant f/2.8.

Could you post sample pics of the 17-55 sometime?



Also, what about the 24-120 f/4 VR? It's border performance is rather meh on FX, but on DX bodies it's razor sharp even wide open throughout most of the range.

As Epic as that is... the saddest part is that the lens that got the hammer is either a 24-70 or a 24-105, and I'd bet it's the 24-70...
