Considering a new prime lens for D7100
6 months ago

Hi!

I often do report photography (people on events and so on) and I find myself switching from 35mm f/1.8 to 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 and back maybe too often (both Nikkor). So I'm thinking what about replacing the two with a different lens altogether... like Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 or Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 (VR included), how do these stand in the terms of speed and image quality?

Note that I'm far from buying anything, just thinking and needing an another opinion.

Thanks
