Our take on the Nikon AF-S DX 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED Lens

by Tara W.
Nikon

Versatile lens with wide maximum aperture

Nikon designed this lens for premium optical performance with their DX SLR cameras, like the D90 or D300. It features a focal range that's ideal for capturing wide-angle and everyday shots. A large maximum aperture throughout the focal range means you'll be able to capture well-exposed photos, even when shooting in lower light with slower shutter speeds. Snap crystal clear outdoor photos that showcase the detailed colors of a sunset background as well as the textures of plant life in the foreground. Then take your camera indoors and shoot group photos of your favorite people without using a flash.


Superior Nikon performance

High-quality Nikon optics ensure accurate, razor-sharp results. A multi-coating on the lens minimizes flare and ghosting. Your photos will be clear and detailed across the entire field of view — from one edge to the other — thanks to three ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass elements and three aspherical lens elements. And Nikon's built-in Silent Wave Motor makes autofocus very fast and nearly silent. You'll be able to quickly focus on your subject and snap images of candid moments.

Features

Overview: This item is an AF-S DX Zoon-Nikkor 17-55mm, f/2.8G IF ED, wide angle to standard zoom lens, optimized use with Nikon digital SLR cameras (DX- format using an APS-C image sensor).

Construction: The three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements and three aspherical lenses control chromatic aberrations while enhancing sharpness and contrast even at the widest aperture settings.

Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC): SIC offers superior color performance and substantially reduced ghosting and flare.

Built-in CPU: The lens has a built-in CPU which allows it to communicate with the camera body for focus and exposure functions. A set of CPU contacts is located on the lens mount for interfacing with the camera body.

Auto Focus: Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and super-quiet operation. The manual/auto focus mode switch allows quick response to situations requiring manual focus operation.

Zoom Control: The lens features a large, textured manual zoom ring for easy zooming control.

Aperture: Because there is no aperture ring on this lens, the aperture must be set on the camera.

Diaphragm: The lens is equipped with a fully-automatic, 9-blade diaphragm that produces a nearly circular aperture. Out-of-focus images in front of or behind the subject are rendered as pleasing blurs.

Optional Accessories: Compatible optional accessories include 77mm screw-on filters. Teleconverters are not compatible with this lens.
