It would be primarily for use on a D700 although I may occasionally use it on a D300s.

The Sigma has the advantage of the f1.4 and a 3 year warranty compared to Nikons 1 year (UK). Also possibly the build quality may be better on the Sigma it being an EX lens whereas the Nikon is more consumer grade although at present I have not handle either. The trouble is the Nikon receives such good sharpness tests results across the frame in the reviews. In the UK we dont have the facility to return what would be considered as non faulty goods to the extent that seems common in the USA. Thus if one was to receive a lemon it would be a case of returning it to the dealer who in turn would return it to the manufacturer who would then decide if there was a problem.
