    Love it!

    Posted by Brian Patton on December 5, 2023

    I love this lens, period. Great size and handles beautifully on my Z5. Easy to transport and the internal zoom is a big plus for me. I use the 17-28 quite often for long exposures where it really shines. Personally I'm not comfortable carrying around super expensive gear (things happen). The 17-28, along with the 28-75 and 70-180, put me in a position of taking great photographs while not being scared to actually use them. Great build quality, though not as exceptional as the premium 2.8 trinity. This lens just gets out of your way and lets you enjoy photography.

    Excellent paired with 24-200 for travel

    Posted by Timothy George on November 17, 2023

    Excellent paired with the 24-200 as a travel combo to cover wide to telephoto. Both take 67mm filters. Sharp, well built, compact.

    Plenty wide on Full Frame

    Posted by JOHN F WIEMER on July 31, 2023

    I also looked at the 14-30 lens on my Z7 but this 17-28 seemed to fit the bill. Less in price and not as heavy. The 14-30 is an excellent lens but at the wider end (14 & 15) it seems to have a keystoning effect and even in the landscapes the straight trees would bend inward. If I needed wider, one could take two pano images and stitch the pano in Lightroom. This lens is plenty wide! No color fringing. Great lens.

    My go to lens for real estate videos

    Posted by John Gervasi on April 16, 2023

    This zoom lens is just perfect for video. I use it for real estate virtual tours. I use it on a Z6 II mounted on a gimbal. You can change focal length without the lens changing size so the gimbal is always in balance. And it is a sharp lens edge to edge at all focal lengths.

    Excellent general purpose lens for Real Estate Photography and Videography.

    Posted by John Schaub on April 8, 2023

    I'm a real estate photographer and videographer. This lens with my Z9 is brit, sharp and fast enough to use for all of my interior and exterior stills and video. For stills is use SB-5000 as a fill to help with the shadows. For video I just use the available lighting. I use the DJI Ronin RS3, and it handles the camera and lens very well I used to use 3 lenses for every job. Now, most of the time, I only need this lens. There is much less setup.

    A great performer, especially in low light

    Posted by MARK READ on March 24, 2023

    The 17-28mm 2.8 has been a real eye-opener for capturing both street scenes and indoor meeting/events in low light situations. I'm looking forward to using this lens in both still captures and occasional video work.
