    i'm pretty happy with the 17-50 build, no wobble, the barrel plastic doesn't feel like plastic but more like some sort of metal.
    I think it's best to compare the 24-70mm to another full frame lens in its range. Such as the sigma, and tamron version (and the old tokina version with a slight variable aperture)

    I think it's a fair comparison wat...
    TS currently owns D300 + 17-50, so is curious to find out if Tamron 28-75's build quality is similar to the 17-50, which he is familiar with.
    No point comparing with another lens (eg. Nikkor 24-70 or Sigma 24-70) since he isn't familiar with it.
    Exploring! :)

    3.35-70mm afd F2.8
    4.28-70 mm f2.8 tamron
    I go for 24_85 f3.5/4.5, better than the f2.8 version. I omit 35/70 cos it flare a lot during flash photography. Used the above 3 len so it just my opinion. As for tamron, i will pass .. cos it 3rd party.

    lol its ok, i've had a chance to handle the nikon 24-70 recently.

    was doing dangerous things like climbing around the edge of a malaysian waterfall pool on the precarious rocks of the bank... to cover a cohesion event.. water games.

    nice to have a trusting friend hehe

    it's heavy... but yeah... immediately can see a BIG difference in the IQ

    I'm using a d700 with
    - n24-70f2.8
    - n50f1.4

    The above Iq I compare with those I've taken with my ex d7000 plus kit lens... is phenomena!

    Another advise, get a body that can handle high ISO.
    In this way, you wun have to compromise on your shutter speed.
    You will feel a differences when you shoot on fast lenses.

    phenomenal referring to? (i guess its the d700 haha)

    guess i'll eventually come back and reference this thread when I've done the deed and upgraded.

    thanks for all the help everyone!
