However, it's an f4 - 4 stops slower than the lenses you mentioned.  There are always trades. If you don't need fast lenses - it's a pretty good option.  I've migrated away from zooms since what you give up is the speed of the lens and I like a fast lens for low light.

I'll be interested to see what you decide, Ernie. I've thought about it, myself - the weight is the main thing putting me off, but I guess it's no heavier than the Sigma 35 f/1.4 + Nikon 85 f/1.4 that I carry a lot now
