You didn't say what camera you are shooting with. If it's a DX, then there will not be much difference between the two lenses at f/8. If it's FX, then the Nikon has more field distortion and softer extreme edges and corners. The center will be equally sharp on both lenses.

If you can live with that, make the switch.

I had just realized I hadn't included which camera but updated it, It's the d800. I just tried the 4.5 and 5.6 range, sigma better at 4.5, but both equal at 5.6 in the center but nikon better at the edges.

both equal at 5,6 and Nikon better at the edges?

Then you are doing something wrong, or you have a very bad copy of the sigma lens
