Sigma 8-16 vs Nikon 10-24
8 months ago

Let me start by saying I already have the Nikon 12-24 Dx, the Nikon 17-55 Dx, and the Nikon 70-300 VRII.
I love the Nikon 12-24 , as an all purpose WA lens, but I often find it's not wide enough for my preferred style of close-focus WA landscapes and the big overlap with the 17-55 keeps the 17-55 on the camera more of the time, except for those really wide shots I love.
I'm thinking of getting rid of the Nikon 12-24 for either the Nikon 10-24, that would give me 2mm shorter on the wide end but still leave the big overlap at the high end, or going for a strictly exclusive UWA in the Sigma 8-16.
The reviews on the Sigma always praise the incredible IQ,.......that is once you find a good copy. Is the QC that bad on a random sample basis ? I've read multiple reviews that claim they needed to return the lens 3-4 times before they found a "good" copy.
