    I'm not familiar with sigma optics as i've never used anything but nikon. i've heard complaints from time to time from people who use them, and haven't ever heard a complaint from people who use straight nikon / canon. i say go with the name brand and not worry about it.

    what's wrong with g mount lenses?
