    I have a Nikon D200 and I use a Sigma 17-55 2.8 lens. It does OK but I was wondering if the Nikon 28-70 2.8 would be better or would it be better to use a macrolens, like the 105 2.8. I'm not sure if a macro would produce better results.

    Is there something particular that your lens does not do to your liking? By all accounts the 28-70 is excellent but is rather expensive, as is the Nikkkor 17-55 2.8. Are you after a general purpose lens or something a bit more specific?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Better for focusing closer than 14" or what?

    Sigma doesn't have a 17-55 f/2.8 on there webiste, B&H, or google, so i'm pretty convinced that it doesn't exist. So i'm just going off the specs of the Nikkor.

    Personallt I can see a place in my bag for all three. Now that I have said that you really need to assess what you are wanting to do with your camers a 105 macro is a very specialised lens if I had the choice I would add to the 17-55 and get the 28-70. If it is any help to you, for weddings I plan to make my next purchases the 17-55 2.8 Nikkor and the 28-70 2.8 Nikkor If I could get a Macro cheap I might consider it but it is not a priority to me.
