Hi
I am planning on getting a new lens to exchange my 18-105.
Reasons are mainly the small aperture of the 18-105, the cheap build quality and the optical performance. I have been considering mainly Nikon and Sigma lenses and due to the fact that the Sigma 24-70 is 33% cheaper than the Nikon 24-70 lens and that it is a bit more compact I now strongly consider the Sigma lens.
But before making the move I thought I should ask you what you think? Is the sigma a good choice or are there any better ones? I mainly need an all-round lens that performs well and is well built, mainly to shoot everyday situations and then accompany on my backpack around Europe this summer. It was released around 2 years ago and should still be up to date, and I hardly think there is going to be a new one from sigma soon.

Best regards, Daniel

is this also the equivalent of 24-70mm L of Canon or entirely different?

Yes it is, it's the Sigma answer to that lens as far as I know.
