Possibly useful link

Disclaimer: I do not own or have used the Nikon. I do own and use the sigma. In my own decision-making, I referenced this link.

http://www.dpreview.com/lensreviews/widget/Fullscreen.ashx?reviews=20,16&fullscreen=true&av=4,4&fl=200,200&vis=VisualiserSharpnessMTF,VisualiserSharpnessMTF&stack=horizontal&&config=LensReviewConfiguration.xml%3F1

If the link works as I hope, it is a tool that enables comparison between the two at various focal length and apertures. Indeed the Sigma never (that I can see) surpasses the Nikon, but performs comparably thru enough of the variations that it found a pretty sweet spot on the price/performance curve for me. I bought mine used. The "sweetness" of that spot is of course different for every user, as they allocate whatever funds are available among their own desires.
