question about the new Sigma 24-105 vs. the Nikon 24-120
8 months ago

There's some buzz about the new Sigma 24-105.

What rationale would one use to purchase it over the Nikkor 24-120?   Size, quality?

The Nikkor has extra reach.  It's less than a $100 dollars more.  It's a Nikkor.  I wouldn't think the Sigma would be as good or in the best case only slight better IQ improvement.  The Sigma requires the docking station to adjust AF fine tune.

Resale value generally holds up better on the Nikkor.

Maybe I'm missing something here that you guys could point out.  I don't see a good argument for purchasing the Sigma.

regards, David
