16-85 or 17-70
May 3, 2012

I have an 18-105 and 70-300 on my D90, and I have been very satisfied with both lenses. Recently I have been looking for a 16-85 as a walkaround, mainly for the added width, but they are in very short supply, even on e-bay.

So I have decided to take a look at the Sigma 17-70 2.8 OS. Do any of you have experience with this lens? Other than the speed, how does it compare to the 16-85? Is the IQ comparable throughout the range?

I shoot mainly landscapes and historic sites, inside and out. And I love early evening landscape shots.

All of your comments will be appreciated.

Thanks, Sam
