I don't have much experience with Sigma glass. Would you rate it equal with top named brand lenses?
I just received the 18-85 f3.5-5.6 Nikkor. Will be working with it today and tomorrow for the first time. I also ordered the 12-24 f1.2 Nikon WA. Or maybe that's 1.8. Correct me if I'm wrong. Anxious to put that one into play.
