Hi Everyone,

Well I just got a bonus from work, so it's time to buy a lense. The dilema, like always is which...

I've Narrowed it down to two:

Sigma 17-35 f/2.8 - 4
CDN $ 950

Nikkor 20mm f/2.8
CDN $ 800

What I want is a fast wide angle lense, but the difference of $150 for all of those extra focal lengths is making me question which to get.

Does Sigma make lense which are as good or better that Nikkor ?
Or is the Price a good indicator of quality (example Nikkor 17-35 f/2.8 is CDN $ 2600.00, unfortunatley the bonus wasn't THAT good =). My gut feeling is Nikkor is superior. Should the f stop variation worry me in a wide angle ?

Anyway all of you Gurus out there, and amature alike,...shoot out your thoughts....I'm glad to read them all.

Thanks....,

Jacek
