I really liked it, as for go-around lens it has pretty good quality/price ratio.

After that add 70-200 F2.8 zoom, preferably with optical stabilization too. Or you can explore prime lenses, 35mm, 50mm, 105mm macro. I do not like extra long zooms like 18-200 etc, they cannot provide good quality by definition.

I was looking at both the Sigma and the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 would you say the Sigma is better than the tamron?
