Had to dig into ancient history (2014) to find these: on D5300

For comparison, here is Tokina 11-16 f2.8

Thanks, dude! The Tokina seems like it definitely has a leg-up on the Sigma in that particular regard.

For the sharpness and extra stops of light though, the Sigma might at least be worth a rental for me to see if it's worth the investment to replace the 16-50 kit I have at the moment, especially considering the price. It'd be nice if Nikon eventually released a Z-mount version of its 17-55mm f/2.8 DX, but I don't know how wise it would be to hold out hope for such a thing.

Thank you 24Peter. I just ordered a 17-50 in perfect shape.

If you don't mind me jumping in here, congrats and let us all know how you like it once you get a chance to use it!
