Re: VCL-HGD1758 or VCL-HG1758

I think that just about every web retailer out there tries to market video camera lenses for digital still cameras, and, in return, trying to sell more. Always check manufacturers' sites to see if it is a video lens or camera lens. From what I understand, camera lenses are usually of higher quality and calibrated for digital still cameras. There's a lot of people out there trying to push video lenses as camera lenses, especially on ebay. I'm sure the HG version will work with the 717, but it was designed and made for video cameras, so go with the HGD version and save yourself some headaches. I purchased one a couple of months ago for my S85 and it works great. Good luck!
