Sigma 18-200 hsm os vs. Nikon 16-85 on a D7000
Jul 13, 2012

Hi,

I recently bought a D7000 and have been using it with my existing Sigma 18-200 hsm os lens...

I am considering buying the Nikon 16-85 lens as I am not too happy with the softness of the Sigma. I am none too bothered about losing the 115mm off the top end as, if I were to go for 16-85, I would likely also buy the Nikon 70-300 at some point in the future.

I also have a AF-S 35mm f1.8 and would similarly at some point, go for the AF-S 50mm f1.8 if I felt I needed it...

Unfortunately there isn't a shop nearby I can try out the 16-85 lens, therefore I am turning to the community for advice as I don't want to be disappointed if I spend £420 on the 16-85 only to find it isn't much of an improvement over my Sigma.

Opinions and advice greatly appreciated.

TIA,

Tim
