I purchased the 16-35 for my D800. When I was looking at the 17-35, I noticed may CL and Ebay Ads claimed their copy of the 17.35 had noisy focusing and in some cases needed repair for focus speed and noise issues. I stayed away from it for that very reason.

I call my 17-35mm "Mr. Squeaky." It's on its second AF-S motor, but this time I'm going to wait until it actually fails before replacing it.

I miss the days when I used to be nostalgic.
