Sigma 17-50 OS vs Nikon 17-55 on high resolution body (D7K)
Feb 17, 2011

I am trying to decide between Sigma 17-50 OS and Nikon 17-55. I saw a lot of threads discussing those two (and Tamron 17-55 of course), but I was not able to find comparison between them on high resolution body (D7K).

I currently have D90 and 16-85 and overall I am satisfied with this lens for general photography, and in particular for family/vacation travel.

I do miss an ability to be more creative with thinner DOF a fast zoom can give me. I'd also like to get a better contrast and micro contrast in low light when using flash is not an option.

I also have 35/1.8 and Sigma 50-150/2.8 and really like it in spite of all its shortcomings. I do not plan to upgrade to FF in the near future but I might pick up D7K or D300 successor towards the end of 2011.

D7K owners pls share your impressions and real field experience comparing Sigma and Nikon. Resolution, contrast, AF accuracy?

TNX,

RF
