The difference is the 'DG' version has extra lens coating to cut down on flare. IMO it was a cheap marketing gimick by Sigma and an excuse to raise the price of their lenses by 15%.

Get the non DG version. It's what both NHL and I use and I think he'd agree it's a wonderful lens.

$1500 is a great price if the lens is still in great condition.
