Hello everyone! Well i was planning to buy the Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 for it has a constant 2.8 aperture and is a sharpe lens till i found a good deal on a barely used 17-70 for around 265$ Now i was thinking this lens is worst at 17mm and f/2.8 so i would consider it more a (24-70mm f/4) Lens, and i was thinking should i get this lens and is it worth it and is it a real upgrade for the kit lens, or should i wait for the 17-50!!!!

Hello everyone, i'm just getting my first entry-level DSLR Nikon 3300, and i'm thinking to do an upgrade but i'm pretty confused as i'm limited to budget on which to get first, new Lens or new Speedlight flash As well i'm confused about brands to get, like i do like Sigma products like the Sigma Lens 17-7- f/2.8-4 or the 17-50 f/2.8 and also for the flash i like the Sigma EF-610 DG ST They seem very good value compared to Nikon products, should i consider Sigma for my next upgrade or save...

Hello. I am looking to broaden my horizons past my 18-200 VR lens.  In my research, I've been looking into the Sigma 17-70 f2/8-4. But there seem to be two different lenses called the same thing. In the lens comparison table, they look different and have some elements that are different, as well. Am I right about that? How can you tell what lens is which? Are both for sale?
