Default Which one is the best ?

I know this is the Nikon Lenses forum - but somebody maybe has some experiences with the following lenses:

Nikon 18-35 AF ED etc...

Sigma 17-35 AF ASP HSM etc...

I'm thinking of buying one of them...what would you choose ? I'm using a D100.

I like to read your opinion!

Will you wait for lenses?
Because if you want 18-35 or 17-35 with d100, it will not normal 17mm or 18mm wide. cuz 1.5x X 17 or 18 = 25mm or 27mm.

If you're serious 18mm wide then you can wait, there is new lenses come soon in spring it's Nikon 12mm-24mm ED G f/4. 12 will be 18mm 24 will be 35mm (12-24mm) 1.5x (18-35mm) Is it worth it? Price? no idea, they didnt say price...

Well, if you cant wait then Nikon 18-35 ED. Your decide.

I am wait for 12-24!

I had Sigma 18-35 (old version) pretty good but other sigma 20-40mm f/2.8 (new) pretty great. But I cant wait for new 12-24mm!

Good Luck

Thanks for your reply!

I definitely wait for the 12-24mm, but it irritates me at little, that you will get round pics if using it on a non DSLR! But then again...I certainly will stick to DSLR...just thoughts.

The last thing I heard here in DK is that the price will be around
1500 USD...that's pretty much.

But what about the Sigma 15-30mm. I've read a lot of reviews about it, almost everybody think it one heck of a lens. I thin the price here i DK will be around 1100 USD...

Do you (or anybody) know that lens ?

Sigma 15-30, I heard some Nikon Dslr users said good and some other say bad cuz flare or distort whatever. I have no idea. But Only i had two sigma 18-35 and 20-40. I like sigma 20-40 f/2.8 for portrait w/flash and night scene or night sky or landscape. Surprise me! I went Alaska past 2 weeks ago, stay too far from Anchorage. near Artic Circle line, I stood on thick ice lake from 10pm til 2am of course with tripoid. Sigma 20-40f/2.8 shoot lot northern lights ACTIVE. Of course, freeze! -16 degree. Photos look great and correct colors!

Anyway no deal about it ha, I understand about price you can afford. Sorry, I have no idea for 15-30 look like?

Good Luck decide whatever you want.
