When I bought this lens about three years ago for my Nikon DX cameras, I had already used and loved the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 non-VC. In fact, that other lens was just as sharp as the Nikkor 17-50 f2.8 and about 1/3 the price when I bought it in 2006.

The bad: at 17mm, the corners could be better and there's quite severe barrel distortion (but it's perfectly correctable in Lightroom, for instance). Across the zoom range, f/2.8 is slightly less usable due to softness, although it's still there if you really need it. The neutral: build quality is decent. It's all plastic, except for the lens mount, and definitely wouldn't ...
