    on the other hand, he reason why I am so keen is because
    I have already decided what is my arsenal of lens is going
    to be.. let's just say, if everything goes well, I'm most likely
    going to get myself a Tokina 11-16, Sigma 20, Sigma 24-70,
    Sigma 70-200.. so right now I'm stuck in whether to choose
    Sigma 24 and change my intended arsenal or choose the
    Sigma 20 and stick to my current dream set up..

    p.s. helpppppppppp

    It is very hard to help you since everyone has different preferences.

    Waaa you are going full sigma ar?

    But seriously, why do you want to get the 24-70? or the 70-200?

    I recommend the tamron 17-50/2.8 or the new Sigma 17-50/2.8 OS instead... And consider the 50-150mm, also since you are on APS-C.

    You need to understand why you need all these F2.8 lenses. Take it easy. slowly work out what you need. I realized I do not neet a F2.8 tele lens at this point. So a cheapo 55-200 will work for me now.

    Okok. Thanks. BTW I think the current thread title is ok. What bro ZCA meant was, since no one against it now, don't need to bother changing it.

    Urm... I think it only means "the title looks okay, no need to change it"... Not about anyone against or not...

    However, I do find it a bit of a hassle to recall it exactly off memory if we were to refer anyone to come find this thread from other DGs. No biggie really, if the majority okays with it, I'll go along with no change... small matter lah... (I just like to grumble sometimes)

    hmmm.. reason bring that I love the feel of shallow dof.. moreover, I
    quite like portraiture photography.. the bokeh that 'popped' the subject
    really amazes me.. and Sigma is my alternative to Nikon, will have to
    chew on grass forever if I go for Nikon..

    besides that, those Sigma lenses are quite good actually.. talking about
    17-50, I prefer the Sigma though.. and what do u feel about the 70-300 instead?

    24-70 there are 2 current versions from Sigma. so do know which one you are aiming for.
    17-50 from Tamron used to beat the Sigma 18-50 hands down in sharpness. The 17-50 OS is new and I have not tried it. I have the old non-VC version from Tamron.
    70-300? that one I rather get the new Nikon 55-300VR. Saw the test pics, very good IQ and price is cheap.


    One thing I do hope you understand is that F2.8 do not give you that thin a DoF if that is what you are looking for. Fast primes is the way to go if you like to blur background a lot.

    Example... this is as blur as it gets... shot at F2.8. If you want thinner DoF, you need to go prime.

    thanks for the advice.. maybe with your experience,
    u can work out a set up for me if u don't mind? I will
    most definitely use that as a reference and work on
    it..

    from what u mention, a more practical set up is will
    be 11-16, 17-50 & 55-300? and if I wanted a nice
    thin dof, I will just get the prime of the appropriate
    focal length?

    11-16, 17-50 & 55-300 will give you the best bang for the buck.

    If you need F2.8 tele, consider the Sigma 50-150/2.8 or if no choice the 70-200/2.8

    But for thin DoF work, bro ZCA got it right. Start with 50/1.8, 35/1.8 and 85/1.8
