I just picked up this lens and it seems reasonably good, but I really like constant aperture lenses. It's silly I admit. I'm attracted to the wider Tokina 12-24 4 (or maybe 11-16 2.8) or the Tamron 17-50 2.8. For whatever reason, I've almost never strayed from manufacturer lenses and don't have any current experience with third-party lenses, but have read a lot of reviews. And from a photography standpoint I think they would be marvelous.

What I hesitate about with third party is color balance compared to Nikkors. (I briefly had a Sigma 28 1.8 with my D700 four years ago and the color (and focus) was way off).

How do the above mentioned lenses play with my current D7000?

I know it is subjective, but I want something that matches up well with my 80-200 2.8 AF-S and minimizes post processing and gives a consistent output from the D7000 (haven't had the kit long enough to know if the 18-35 and 80-200 actually do that, but I haven't notice a big difference in output between them.

Thanks, I know it is kind of a vague question, but just want to get some ideas from folks who have maybe gone through this process.

All that said, what I ultimately hope to get is the Sigma 18-35 1.8. It looks too nice to pass up.
