Sigma 50-150 2.8 HSM (ver 1) to replace my Nikon 55-200?
May 18, 2012

I've got a Nikon 55-200 and I've been very happy with it, but now I've seen a Sigma 50-150 2.8 HSM (version 1, not 2).

The Sigma doesn't have any Vibration Reduction, but it is a faster lens.

I'm a little worried that I'll lose the reach, but I've just moved up to a D7000 so I've got lots of cropping power.

Is it a good idea get this lens to replace my 55-200?
