Re: Lens advise for new D5100???

I am not sure about the superzooms, but I have use the Sigma 17-50 OS HSM and it works well for me. It is sharp in the center wide open, and the corners start to get with the program at F4.  The OS does help when taking low light shots assuming I don't need to freeze subject movement. I had the 35 1.8G (stolen) and that lens is a gem on DX, I still have the 50 1.8G but use that less often now that I've replaced the kit lens with the Sigma. For cheap range I enjoyed the 55-200mm a lot, it's small and offers decent IQ for ~150 used.
