I'm considering the Sigma Contemporary 17-70 as an upgrade/alternative/change from the Nikon kit lens and have a couple of doubts/questions. As I have fully functioning feet I assume the difference between the wide end is almost negligible, yes? Any opinions as to how much I'd notice the difference between the 55mm and the 70mm? Obviously it's faster than the kit lens, but is it worth the expenditure? I can buy it new for £285 (postage included) and as I have the 150-600C I may be tempted...

Dear all, A couple days ago I posted a similar thread in the Nature and Wildlife Photograpy forum, but so far it had no reaction. Maybe because my question was a fit in two forums? Here's a summary of the question - I refer to the other thread for all the details to avoid content duplication: In preparing a wildlife trip, I'm looking for a reasonable telephoto lens that suits my Nikon D7100 body (DX sized sensor). The sole lens I have, is a portrait zoom (Sigma 17-70mm "C") which also sees...
First off, I should say that I don't actually own a kit lens - I purchased my D5100 body only. Sometimes I wish I had a normal zoom so I don't have to carry all my lenses around. I asked a similar question in the past and found some possibilities, but I can't decide on anything: -Nikon 16-85mm -Sigma 17-70mm C -Sigma 17-50mm Any other suggestions are welcome. I could also go the cheap route and get a Nikon 18-105. Overall, I just want a standard range lens that handles well and has better...
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...

Hi Everyone, Can anyone advice me which one should I buy, I will be using the lens for event photography, group and tight shots, and some landscape. We all know that Canon 'L' lens are superb in terms of quality, but the features / qualities of the new Sigma is pretty attractive, it is a new model, wide aperture up to f2.8, optically stabilized, and most of all, better price. What about the widest focal point of both lenses, as per the specs, Canon is showing wider angle of view than Sigma at...
