Hi! Thomas.

Just would like to ask if the sigma lens is comparable to the Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8?
I am considering the 24-70mm f2.8 too.
What is better? 24-70mm or 70-200mm?
I will mainly use it for my travels and taking pictures of my growing kids.
I already have a 35mm f1.8 nikkor. thanks

The Nikon has a better IQ plus stabilization (very practical esp. under available light!) over the respective Sigma 70-200.
Ad if you already own the 35/1.8 I'd suggest to complement this with a 70-200 or the Nikon 70-300 VR.

My problem with Nikon is the cost.
What model of Sigma should I get to be exact? There are plenty of lenses and I am confused.

The latest version of the Sigma is the "Sigma AF 70-200mm 2.8 EX DG Macro HSM II"

Don't forget my review of the sigma in the user reviews section. ;)

Well, as all three lenses cover different focal-lengths and thus photographic tasks I'd strongly suggest the 70-200 as complement to your 35mm lens.
