Sigma 17-70 "C" or 17-50 2.8 OS?
3 months ago

I'm looking to replace my 18-200 VR, which I bought for a trip about a year ago and ended up being pleasantly surprised with.  I'm fairly happy with it for what it is, but I have a lot of overlap and I don't really need the super-zoom.  My top 2 choices are now these Sigmas.

I'm looking for quality more than anything.  I'm leaning towards the 17-50.  I'm wondering if it'll even replace my 35mm 1.8, which is probably my favorite lens.

In reality my top three choices are all Sigma, if you count the 17-35 1.8.    I'm not sure what that says about the state of Nikon DX.
