Well I finally found the Sigma 35 with a Nikon mount.  Got it from a place near DC called Ace Photo. The website’s cheesy but the store’s not bad. Also picked up the Sigma 50mm 1.4. Lovely lenses...

The Sigma 35 is actually bigger and heavier than I thought; In fact it’s not too much smaller than my Nikon AF-S 17-35 2.8D - Weight wise the Sigma is 23.5oz vs. 26.2oz, and is about a half inch shorter than the 17-35; filter wise though, 67 for the sigma vs. 77 for the 17-35.

Also the Sigma 35 really balances well on my D800E.  It definitely balances better than the 17-35. It’s also a solidly built metal lens, unlike the plastic built Sigma 50mm 1.4. BTW the Sigma 50 1.4 is huge for its focal length and takes a 77mm filter.

Anyway now all I need to do is get out and do some shooting.
