Oh and by the 70-300 you mean the Nikon VR version, right? The cheap ones that clock in at around 100-180 dollars aren't that great.

Same here - look at the signature block! It will be a great combination.

Those are awesome lenses, I've been looking into picking the 70-300 up, but I don't know if I should keep saving for the 70-200. Anyways, those lenses make a great combo that you can't go wrong with.

Nikon 70-300: 360 euros

Not what I'd call similar.....

Of course, a second hand 70-200 is a different story.

A new 70-300 Nikon: $540
A second hand 70-200 Sigma: $800

Still a $260 price difference, but I guess it's relatively comparable.
