what do u suggest? 18-35 Sigma 1.8, Nikon 18-35 IF-Ed, D300 .. and some other gears

Hi all,

I'd like to understand which way to follow to upgrade my gears.

I own a Nikon D300, Nikon 18-35 IF-ED (not G), Nikon 28-105 and Nikon 50 f1.8 AF-S G. I've no a big budget (for now about 600€) so I cannot change all I'd like to do, so it's important to look for a path to follow doing some little steps in the future.

I like the Dx crop effect on my 28-105, that I use like a macro (RR 1:2 from 50mm to 105mm) to put very close to flowers.

I like this lens also when going for street photography, as it's ok for candids, so i don't want to replace it.

I'd liek to have a faster lens (expecially for short dof) in the wide angle to normal angle of view, so in my 18-35 range.

What if a I sold my Nikon 18-35 to buy the Sigma 18-35 1.8 Art? If some day I will change to Fx I should by another 18-35 again (there may be I'd by the G version or the 16-35 f/4 Nikon), but ... really don't know when it could happen .. I've no a lot of money so ...

If I keep my 18-35, what could I add to my gears?

I'd also like to buy an used 105 macro lens in the next months, and I want also to buy a telezoom (for now my choice is for an used 70-210 f/4 AF Nikon; the 70-200 f/2.8 Tamron is a bit heavy to carry with me ...)

Thanks, S.
