Top 3 lenses of Nikon, what about Sigma top 3?
Jan 29, 2009

Begin January this forum started the following discussion about 3 top lenses of Nikon: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1034&message=30616776

Looking to the ranking list and understanding my needs, I would select the following:

1- AF-S VR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED (1529 euro)
3- AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED (1439 euro)
4- AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G IF-ED (888 euro)

In total 3856 euros

BUT, what are your opinions about the same lens specifications but with Sigma:

1- Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX APO DG HSM Nikon (849 euro)
3- Sigma 24-70mm F 2.8 EX DG Macro (411 euro)
4- Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM Nikon (439 euro)

In total 1699 euros

A significant price difference but what are your opinions about the quality differences between Nikon and Sigma as outlined above? Is it really worth to buy Nikon althought the specifications can be compared with Sigma?

I'm very intrested in your opinions. thanks
