Re: Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 EX DC Macro

I had one for quite a while and really rate it. It's very very close in performance to the Nikor 17-55 that I replaced it with. It's lighter and more compact to boot. I had the older non macro non HSM so that should be a beauty.

I could never afford the 800 or so for the Nikon, so considering I only paid 100 for the Sigma, I'm very happy then.

Re: Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 EX DC Macro

No way is the Nikon worth the extra. (Lulu if you are reading this I am of course joking and I had to have the Nikon as it made excellent financial sense and I was unable to make any usable images with the Sigma)

FLEABAY? are you talking about ebay? I tried to look for Fleabay but it's apparently a private site.

Sorry not to be mean, but it is funny how different cultures are...unless you were also making a joke?


EDIT: LOOK! FleaBay Classifieds
