I have added a new lens into my camera bag, the classic Nikon 17-55 f2.8. Over the past few months there have been times where I sorely missed the lack of 36mm-69mm focal length in my current lens offerings so I had to address it. This lens will close most of that gap. It came down to this or the Tamron G2 24mm-70mm but I chose the Nikon because I found a very solid deal on a used copy that came in around half the price of the Tamron G2 24-70. I am still lacking from 56mm-69mm but it will not be an issue since I can just crop in anyways.
