    It will be possible...but cost wise, not sure if you think it's worth it..

    Taking prices from http://sg.camerarental.biz/PriceList/PriceList.aspx

    Nikkor 17-55 -> $35 per day...
    2 weeks = $490

    Top abit more and you can easily get a 2nd hand 17-50..

    Buy, use then sell? The lost will be smaller than rental fee

    buy new and sell it away after your holiday will not lost so much,
    but seriously you will not want to bring a 17-55f2.8 on a holiday tour, unless you are shooting for money.

    Personally I feel the 17-50mm tamron F/2.8 matches weight, price and sufficient quality factors for traveling. But if I own a 17-55mm, it's definitely going into the plane.
