    Unsung hero lens

    Posted by Joost C on March 1, 2024

    The versatility, usability and image quality of this lens keep amazing me. It must be the most underrecognized lens in the lineup. If you wonder about the numerous commenters online who can't get over how it's "not an S lens" or "just a Tamron design", I'm pretty sure it just translates to "I haven't tried this lens". I love it for wide shots, video (gimbal!), low light isituations, etc. I even use it as a video conferencing lens since it has a great minimal focus distance..And because I like overkill I guess :-)

    Simply Excellent.

    Posted by Jeffrey Rodriguez on January 2, 2024

    Can get enough of it. Excellent size and handles beautifully on my Z6 & Z5. Great to travel with and the the fact that is a zoom kinda prime lens it's a plus. Great for long exposures, super sharp, super wide and excellent build quality at a great price. 100% recommended.

    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.
