The Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 OS HSM and the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 VC cost about the same unless one is running a promotion. The Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 without VC is less expensive. All three are very sharp lenses. The Sigma with the HSM focus motor focuses faster than the Tamrons.

You should also consider the new Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 OS HSM and the new Tamron 70-200 VC. They are good lenses and half the price of the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VR. You should also consider buying a used lens. Check keh.com and B&H.

BTW, the Nikon 18-105 VR is a very sharp lens. If your photos aren't sharp something is wrong with the lens or with your technique.

I think the 18-105mm need some AF fine tuning or my Technique is bad.

I will study more to improve my technique and check how I can test the lens if its backfocusing on my D7000..

thanks
