Re: Ultra Wide Zoom for FX

The 17~35 is my choice. I have used a 16~35 and that is also a good choice, especially considering the price difference, but you mentioned using it on your older Nikons so I think the 17~35 should be a clear winner.

I prefer to have the faster aperture than VR in this range. I can hand-hold at lowish speeds anyway. At even lower speeds I prefer a tripod.

I was hoping the 16~35 would be a smaller lens than the 17~35 but was suprised to find it is even bigger (though not as heavy). I'm still happier with my 17~35.
