Your thoughts on the 17-55 f2.8
Oct 27, 2012

So I'm giving the 17-55 some serious thought.  I do more and more landscape and find that I am just not that satisfied anymore with the 18-105 on my D7000.  My 50mm gives me nothing but razor sharp shots but it's not wide enough.  I must admit, that I have been having a hard time justifying the cost of the 17-55 as I find it is a bit expensive for what it gives.  I'd definitely not buy the lens new, but I was considering getting it used.  CA was what bothers me most about the 18-105 but I was also hoping to be able to shoot at f2.8 with the 17-55 at any focal length without worrying that much about a serious loss of sharpness.  I would appreciate to hear what you have to say and please feel free to address my concerns.  Thanks.
