Looking for a new super wide zoom for my Fuji S2 Pro. Forget about the Nikkor AF-S 17-35 f/2.8 ED-IF or the 17-55 G DX lens - both are over $1,300 and more than I'm willing to spend right now. With the Nikkor AF 17-70 hard to find and B&H out of stock I'm considering the Tamron 17-35 f/2.8-4 Di LD. Anyone have one and likes it ...or better yet anyone that dislikes it and wants to shed some light? Thanks - Ron

I'm not real familiar with the specs of your camera but doesn't it have a CCD smaller than 35mm format? i.e. isn't an 18mm lens the equivalent of 24mm on a 35mm film camera?

If so, then I wouldn't consider anything starting with 17mm to be a super wide. That is what they are making the 12-24 zooms for.

Now if 17mm or so is really what you want, I think the Nikkor 18-35 would be your best bet. Read some reviews of it on the net and it will sound good to you. I couldn't find anything negative about it.

This guy seemed to like it:
