The Sigma 24-105. I had the Nikon 24-120 in my cart at B&H waiting for them to reopen last night. As I walked past my local dealer yesterday afternoon I noticed a poster for the new series of Sigmas on the window. Inside the proud dealer showed me his just received Sigma, beautiful lens, I relieved him of it after brief test.


Got the Sigma 24-105 yesterday, and my brief tests are very promising.

Other than reacquiring the 14-24mm--the only lens I've sold that I regret giving up--Nikon doesn't have any lenses that I want to acquire.  I was tempted by the 80-400mm G, but its price and bulk dissuaded me. What I'd really like is a Nikon equivalent to the Canon 70-300mmL or a 300mm f/4 VR (or, daresay I) a 400mm f/5.6 VR, that are not significantly bigger than the current 300mm F/4 D.

I'm not optimistic Nikon will produce these lenses, so I'm hoping that Sigma will hear me and address my desires.
