Sigma 17-50, 17-70, or anything else?
6 months ago

I know, I know, this is a tale as old as time! However, even after reading previous conversations I can't figure out what to do. I want a really good walk around lens. My gear is listed below, I use a Nikon d7100 and I am happy with all my other focal lengths. So I need an "average length" or "walk around" lens. Yes, my 50-150 f/2.8 or my 18-35 f/1.8 have better IQ, but they are large, heavy, and don't cover the whole range I'm looking for. Do you guys have any suggestions for me here? I'm open to really any brand. Budget wise, I'm fine as long as we can keep it sub 1k (no Nikon 24-70). Thanks everyone!
