    Default Nikon AF 80-200 f/2.8D ED or Sigma APO 70-200mm F 2.8 EX DG/HSM

    Which lens do you think is better, mainly based on sharpness and AF speed?

    I dont have experience for the Sigma, but I think the Nikon is a better choice, and very good value for money if u dont need the higher priced AFS, VR, etc.

    the VR model is great i have used it, but too pricey, only have like 2k to spend, and second hand ones seem to start at 2300-2500, unless you want to sell me one for 2000

    thanks, but will probably try and get another 500 bucks and then buy the vr model of CS, if you know anyone selling a cheap one please pm me, that would be super, but i doubt one will go any cheaper than 2500.

    Thanks again

    ok but hope you consider a lot before you get it as it is a big sum of money.

    yeah it is, its quite a hard decision, struggling with a decision at 1500 let alone 2500!!! photography's expensive! but hopefully my stock photos will help pay for some of it, just need to upload more!
