Re: Nikon 17-55 F2.8 or Sigma 18-35 F1.8 ??

I love the Nikon 17-55 2.8, have rented it many times and have considered buying it, but I pre-ordered the Sigma 18-35 1.8 instead. Looking through the EXIF data on my cosplay shots (http://www.wingedmammal.com/dragoncon_2012/dragoncon_2012.shtml#.UdOS9_nvt8H ) I only rarely shoot above 35mm because the crowded conditions prevent getting enough distance, so I figure the 1.8 aperture will be a bigger benefit to me than 36-55mm.
