Is VR not necessary on the Sigma 18-55 1.8 ?
8 months ago

I am contemplating in purchasing this lens. Months ago I sold my nikon 17-55, but before i sold it i did compared it to my dad's Sigma 17-50 wich does stabilisation and It did make a difference in better sharper photos vs the 17-55.

Have any of you compared both Sigma 17-50 vs 18-35? The Optical quality of the new lens I hear is fantastic, but have any of you found any differences when shooting hand held? Does the 18-35 still respond better even if it doesn't have VR?

FYI, mainly I will be bouncing flash indoor with this lens for indoor parties and weddings.
