Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED NIKKOR AF-S

Review Date: Jan 1, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,000.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Sharp, quick AF, all round lense
heavy, no VR, pricey (but you get what you paid for)

just moved from Canon to Nikon D7000 and pair it with 24-70mm, love this lens so much, quick AF and sharp from center to border.

The downside only no VR (wish it had this feature on it) and heavy. overall it's very good lense

Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM

Review Date: Oct 3, 2010 Recommend? no | Price paid: $700.00 | Rating: 5 

Pros: Sharp, very good IQ, OS works like charm
AF is not working

I was put a very high expectation for this lens as I was a bit hard to decide this lens or Tamron 17-50mm, however at the end I put my choice to this lens. I bought it online though.

First impression after out of the box was the build seems to be good, however at rear lens I found there was an open hole for dust to come in Sad

Now the test, first test at 17mm AF worked like charm, super fast and silent, step up to 24-30mm AF still worked perfect However the nightmare begun from 35mm above, the AF didn't work at all, hunt hunt hunt and hunt *sigh*

OS was really work.

IQ was really superb, sharp from center to border but soft at corner especially wide open.

At the end I decided to sell this lens Sad
