Sony or Sigma 18-250 for a700?
Aug 8, 2009

Sony DT 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 Zoom Lens
Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM

Okay, I'm getting ready to pull the trigger for a walk-around lens, particularly for my wife who doesn't want to carry the camera bag with 3-lenses anymore. And I have limited it to two lenses above (so don't ask about CZ xxx or Sony G xxx or ...). I always thought I would buy the Sony model but the new Sigma has me intrigued. Also, I have eliminated the Tamron version as my research says the Sony badge focuses faster on the a700.

I'm not a serious photographer, typically family type pictures (kids, pets, vacation, etc,).

I have absolutely no desire to go FF in the future.

None of my current lenses have the wide side.

Any comments?
