Alternatives to Nikkor 17-55 f2.8
Jul 27, 2009

I would like to add a short zoom that would do well in capturing indoor family photos. I have the 35f2 and 50 1.4D but a short zoom would probably be more convenient.

The Nikkor would probably be ideal, but I'm not sure that would be the best use of funds given the intended use.

Can anyone help to handicap the 3rd party f2.8 alternatives? I was close at one point to taking the plunge on the Tamron 17-50 but the overexposure issue with flash scared me away as did the vignetting at 2.8 where I think this lens would spend much of its time.
