If you want a thorough debate, read it in DPReview's forums, under the Nikon lenses forum. It has been debated to death, over and over...

Samples. Most at 12mm. I think most at f8 also.

Comments you can search under dpreview's Nikon SLR lenses forum.

Here in SG, the sigma is a much better buy. Very well built the sigma, drop from 50cm and no cracks even for the hood. :thumbsup: So can't say that the Nikkor is better in built (which most give :thumbsd: for 3rd party). Heard from a user that the Nikkor suffers from even worse CA. And the Sigma is full frame.
