    Default 24-85/f2.8-4.0 vs Sigma 24-70/f2.8 HSM for D700

    Hi Guys,

    I am thinking of getting zoom (now using prime) for my D700. I am considering either of above two as my walk-about lens.

    The Sigma is S$750 more expensive than Nikkor (I know it is not fair comparison but cannot compare it with Nikkor 24-70 as I cannot afford one for now). I have done research and can find sparse information on 24-85/f2.8-4.0 though some posting said the discontinued 24-85/f.3.5-4.5 is actually sharper.

    Any of you guys have first hand experience with either lens? I will lose some with non-constant 2.8 but that is what I can do for now with my budget.

    My priority is IQ (sharpness, contrast, barrel distortion - in order of priority).

    Thanks you.
