Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC

18-50f28
Review Date: Apr 24, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $365.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Received this lens approx. 2 weeks ago and seems to be a very good lens. Well built I must have a good copy because pictures are crsytal clear.
Cons:

I like the lens and replaced the kit Nikkor 18-70 lens which I have for sale. I am having a situation which is mostly me. I have the lens mounted to a Nikon 70DS and when shooting on Auto or P the lens is at 2.8 throughout the zoom range. However when I put it on S or A priority it goes to 4.5 and I cannot seem to change it. Is anyone else having this problem or have a suggested as to what I am doing wrong.

Pros: The flash is excellent. I have been using it now for 4 months with no complaints. It will even do multi-burst on my Nikon D70S with no problem.
Cons:
At this point I am not sure there are negatives.

I have been using this flash for approx. 4-months and find myself impressed everytime I use it. I use it as a bounce flash alot or with the defusser which works really well. The manual that came with the flash is almost as thick and comprehensive as the one with the camera. I would recommend this flash to anyone.

Pros:
Cons:

Rather than a post this is a question and I may be in the wrong place to do this so forgive me. I have the Nikon 70Ds with the kit lens 18-70. I want to sell the lens and even through it seems to be a good lens I have been looking at the Sigma 18-50 2.8 which I believe based on what I have read would suit my needs. However since Tamron is ready to release the 17-50 2.8 does anyone have an opinion if I should wait. I am also purchasing the Sigma 20-200 2.8.
