I have a Nikon D70s and am considering purchase of either of these lenses. Any recommendations one way or the other?
If you can swing the purchase price, go w/ the 70 - 200 VR. This is one outstanding lens it's fast (f2.8)and makes great images.
I currently have both and will not go back to the Nikon for the simple reason I can't see any difference in quality and the ergonomics of manual focusing with the Sigma and AF speed are so far superior to the Nikon non AFS. Even though I use it on an F5 I have started to manual focus as it is a pleasure to do so. I just bought the Sigma 1.4 EX TC which by all accounts is optically very good as well. My dream is now to get the Sigma 120-300 with the TC always attached to complement the 70-200.
PS. It feels great on my wifes D70s as well.
Thanks for the comeback
Thank you for your valued opinion
