Nikon 17-55 vs Sigma 17-50 on D7100?
8 months ago

Looks like i can pick up a used Nikon 17-55 f2.8 for roughly 800 give or take.  This is a far shot of the 1400 dollar price tag new.  However, the sigma 17-50 can be had brand new for 569 on Amazon. Is the Nikon still worth getting? I have a budget of about 850.  If i get the sigma i will have money left over for maybe a grip.  But I've been reading things about the sigma not playing nice with the D7100 and if the Nikon is much better i wont hesitate to forego the grip for the better glass. Any thoughts?
