Need a new low light/indoor lens for D7000
Dec 28, 2013

I have a 2 1/2 year old and an 8 month old at home who I spend the majority of my time taking photos of now.  I've been using the 50mm 1.8d inside the house taking pictures of them but it's not wide enough so I end up putting the 18-200 VR back on.  It does a decent job inside but isn't as sharp as the prime and doesn't focus as well.  So I've almost decided on the Sigma 17-50 OS but wonder if there is another lens I might have overlooked that will work good indoors.  Rented the 17-55 a few times and have been impressed with it.  I considered the 35mm but would rather have a zoom since the boys never stay in one place.  I have heard good things about the 16-85VR and the Sigma 17-70 OS but I fear I will miss the constant 2.8.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
