Constant/Fixed Aperture Midrange Lens, Nikon or third party?
4 months ago

Hi all,

I have been using the 18-140mm lens on my D7100, but i feel i need the constant aperture as a general walk around lens. I realize the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 is a part of the holy trinity and falls under this category, but looking at the price, and i dont feel its worth spending for a non VR lens specially when you are hand holding a walk around lens and not using the tripod. Are there any good non nikon brand lenses with/around the same focal length with cheaper option? tamaron? sigma? I guess they do.. but not seeing much favourable reviews comapring with the nikon.

Thanks in advance.
