I looked at it again. The lens has no VR so it is useless to me because of tremors. In fact, I am selling off all my non VR lenses.

The lens is designed to replace your primes. If you can get away with 100mm on a crop body, good for you. Your other option is to get an used FF body for around $1k. And used D700 or an used D610 or even the D750.

Need VR. Bigly,or badly, my hands are too shakey. Sometimes they are steady but those times are not reliable. Using the Siggy 24-105 on the D500 gets me the range. Judicious sharpening does the rest. Already have a D800.

IF the siggy had VR it would be a no brainer.

Even with f/1.8 the 50-100 is a big chunk of glass to hold steady but I'm hoping it will be sufficiently hand holdable. I understand with your tremors the VR is a big help. If you're looking for fast lenses with VR, then check out the Tamron SP series - The Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 VR was my second choice, but having a fixed f/1.8 zoom vs. a prime is more enticing so that's why I'm going this route to start.

No need to condemn an excellent lens due to your shooting problems...
suggest going to a body offering in camera stabilization.

Not condemning it at all. As I said, if it had VR I would have it. That would make it a no brains required decision to buy. But, health concerns are always important at our age. I am glad your hands are steady. Mine aren't.

Where in my statement did I disparage Sigma? I would love to have the lens, but Sigma's lack of VR means I cannot. There are days I need to mix the corn with the mashed potatoes to keep the corn on the fork! Peas get hilarious sometimes.

There were more such posts...
If the lens is not for you, fine...don't buy one. Poisoning a thread seems kinda fruitless,
probably better to move on, and let those of us enamored with it...gush. I did, however
enjoy the peas reference Along with my 200 f2...Zeiss 135 f2...35 f1.4 'A' this new
50-100 f1.8 is one of the sharpest lenses I own (15 ATM) Pushin' 70 and still rock solid.

Has any user of this lens ever used in full frame or 1.2/1.3X cropped sensor camera? The extreme resolution looks very useful indeed

Will(trenchmonkey) does. I believe the pictures in Page 7 and 8 from D7200 were in crop mode. He's also posted pictures from D810 in crop mode too.

I do, all I have is full frame bodies but yet I still have this lens after I sold off all my other DX stuff, I use it in 1.2x or 1.5x crop on a D800 or Df.

Thank Kilowhiskey and SiMuMe
I sometimes use my beloved 18-35f1.8 in D800/d750... and Nikon's 1.2X crop is very useful.

Dustin Abbott did a nice review of the lens and about 2/3 of the way down he talks about "Mounted on Full Frame" and using in the 1.2x and 1.5x crop modes, sounds like the lens is very usable at 1.2x with full frame bodies.

I received my 50-100 a little over a week ago and have been playing with it. So far I am extremely impressed, so much so that I sold my Nikon 85mm f/1.8G which is a great lens, but the versatility of this zoom is really incredible, I look forward to getting more playtime with it.

^ Bill, just imagine the results with Nikon's D500/D7200 vs his Canon captures.
...and on the D810/800 in 1.2 mode consider your mind blown.
Calling this lens amazing, is an understatement.

Exactly, the Siggy Art 50-100 on my new Nikon D500 is really incredible. I upgraded recently from a D7100 and I must say the D500 is definitely a worthwhile upgrade. I just preordered the D850 but who knows when I'll actually get it; however, I am loving the D500 so much especially with the 50-100 I'm not sure if I "need" the D850, but am curious how it will do with the 50-100 in 1.2x and 1.5x crop modes.

Well, I have been suppressing my GAS for so long...and in D500 with 18-35f1.8, I have very similar feelings that I don't really need to bring out my FX cameras.

Looking I am into this lens soon

My beloved 24-70 ED has a bent barrel and is asked by local Nikon CS 1100 for a fix....
50-100 will temporarily heal my wound

I love this lens, Iím thinking of selling my 85/1.4, 105/1.4 and 135/2 and just go with this lens for that range.
