Anyone use/d the Sigma 18-50 or the 17-70 (Old version)
Dec 14, 2009

Hi,

I'm having a nightmare deciding between the Sigma 18-50 2.8 or the newly announced 17-70 OS (see below):

I have used 2 copies of the Nikkor 17-55 & both had a very soft right hand side at wide angle (eg people on this side of the group shot were a lot softer than the other side) so I know that Nikons may not be perfect. with this in mind I'm considering the 2 Sigmas to compliment my 50-150 2.8 II which I'm very pleased with.

The reason for this post is to find any people pics with any of the above lenses to help me decide.

I'd be very grateful!

Thanks,

James.
