Sorry, but I disagree completely. There's some cases where the "system" lenses aren't the best option or only viable option available. The clearest example of this, the Sigma 150 macro. There's nothing in the Nikon or Canon lineup even close in price or quality to compare this lens to, it's darn near perfection and very reasonably priced.

Agreed. I've used the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 for a few years. The version with optical stabilization should be available anyday, now ...

Sigma also offers a better candidate for the 50mm f/1.4 , although larger than the Nikon offering. I believe this is the case with the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 as it appears to have superior sharpness and optical characteristics at f/2, which is precisely the reason I bought the lens. It just showed up on my doorstep today.
