Re: Lens to match D7000

Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX ED VR
Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM FLD
Tamron SP AF17-50mm F/2.8 Di II LD Aspherical (IF)


Stabilized lenses make perhaps more sense reading your subject interest. They are both confirmed very good performers on d7000. I will test them head to head with a few things in mind in shortest time.

The Nikkor has more FL range on both ends..

The Sigma has more aperture range resulting in superior subject isolation options n has also better bokeh..

I think you might be able to make you mind upon design differences - unless you have a specific demand in something (what?). You will get a very nice glass in either case.

They are both sharp lenses. The Sigma may have an edge, friend of mine swears so. One of those things I am going to look into side to other lenses (16-85 inc).
