    Going to try this out for at least a week and keep my Sigma 18-250 on my D300s and use nothing else.

    I'm so used to faster glass now I'm kind of curious, but I have a Gary Fong Puffer to use with the pop-up flash or my SB-400 Speedlight to help me out.

    I've always been very happy with that lens but want to see what it's like going back to it after some time with the 18-50 and 70-200 f/2.8 combo.

    Part of me wants to sell the Sigma 70-200 and 18-250 to fund the purchase of a used Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VR.

    hmm.. that's quite a lot of focal range covered though.... maybe try one prime lens instead. More of a challenge. Might force you to think outside the box a little more.

    Yeah seriously, 18-250 is a stretch.

    I've been shooting with my kit 18-105 for some time now, I wouldn't mind having a couple different lenses to work with. I've rented a few and they really give you some artistic flexability

    I'm not using it as a challenge, I'm using it to see if I want to keep it or sell it. :D
