I've decided, I'm going to take the plunge and buy the Sigma.  I have a $500 dollar gift card to my local camera shop, so it's not going to cost me that much.

I have no doubt that the Nikon is a great lens. I have checked it out at the camera shop, and it is built like a tank.  But, at roughly $1,400 for the Nikon and $620 for the Sigma, I simply can't believe the Nikon is that much better.

We will see how it turns out, I will pick it up in the next day or two.  I have a party this Saturday, so we will see how the pictures turn out.
