Sigma 24-60mm f2.8 EX DG Lens

24-60mm
Review Date: Sep 15, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $250.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: sharp, small, light, decent AF speed, price, good build
Cons:
none

I don't use a wide-mid zoom much and can't justify the price for the Nikkor. I've owned the Tamron for years and while a great performer I always felt like I wanted it to be a little wider.
I tried the Sigma HSM while stretching my justification and it wasn't worth it for me.

The 24-60 F2.8 won't set a record or turn heads but it does get the job done. Wide open, excellent. By F4, all I'll ever need.

Focus is accurate with my copy and I don't feel like I miss anything because of the lack of AFS/HSM.

Nikon 105mm f/2D AF DC-Nikkor

1932NAS_180
Review Date: Oct 23, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $850.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Build and image quality. Recessed front element and pullout hood. OOF rendering.
Cons:
None.

I really like this lens.

The working distance feels very comfortable(FX). The images are extremely smooth and yet very sharp.

Out of the many bodies/lenses I've owned, the 105DC/D700 is my favorite combo.
