I'm new to Nikon so would appreciate some input from other users as to whether you think the 17-55mm churns good quality results, and any other lens I should consider.
I've got the Nikon 12-24mm F4 and it's a cracking lens and have used for many misty dawn shots in low light, hand-held without problems, but it may be a bit dear. You could consider the Sigma 10-20mm at about Â£400 and it's F4-5.6. Lots of people swear by it but haven't used myself.
