    It states in his post mate, that he is sticking too DX.

    You will never ever regret the purchase of a 70-200 VRII on any body. Mine has been used on both a D7000 and D700 [​IMG]

    That is correct! In probably 6-12 months. I have to see first if there will be any other alternative to D800E that will suit my needs for less money. I mentioned that I will not buy NOW an FX camera as I prefer to invest in FX lenses for the moment as they should work on a DX camera.

    I like this idea best so far. Combined with selling the Nikon 18-200mm VRII should work great.
    And yes, I will buy Nikon lenses from now on although I never regretted having the Sigma 150-500. It is slow but the OS works great, focus is fast enough and there is absolutely no better alternative for the same price...

    I have one question though: which would be sharper Sigma 150-500 at 400mm f/6.0 or the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 + TC-20E III at 400mm f/5.6 ?

    Thanks!

    So you think that Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 + TC-20E III at 400mm f/5.6 would be better in term of image quality and sharpness then the Sigma 150-500 at 400mm f/6.0 ?

    Thanks!

    how can you recommend a lens that is barely tested and not even available on nikon camera yet.
    i rocked my tamron 17-50 a LONG time. focus speed is allright and is dead on spot. the 17-50 is one sharp lens. i owned a 18-105 and it was crap compared to the tamron 17-50.

    That would be up for debate! You do lose IQ with the TC... but it is usable. I have some very good images from that combo.. but I have also seen some excellent images from the Sigma (a good copy of it!). If you are happy with the Sigma, then I would keep it. Buy the 70-200... then rent a TC 20E III and you can do your own comparisons... make up your own mind.

    In my opinion the Sigma 150-500 is pretty much like the Nikon 18-200: as long as you know how to use it to get the best out of it you will be happy with them both.

    I am trying to make up my mind and that is why I am here asking stuff. Renting is a good idea though. I think I will buy the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 first and then rent the 70-200 with a x2 converter.

    Thanks!

    I bought the Nikon 70-200mm VRII for my D7000, and it rarely leaves the camera now. I just took delivery of a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, so I'm looking forward to putting some miles on that lens also!!!
