I had this choice to make recently. Extensive reading brought me to the conclusion that in order to get the sigma to perform, it had to go down to f4.

My copy spanks every lens, at every stop and focal length, that's ever been on my camera. To include several (non-prime) L's ... without question, the one lens I've ever had that came with major wow factor. The best $ I've spent to date.

Wow, now we have rhyming reviews ;)

My copy spanks every lens
At every stop and focal length
And if choose the right f-stop
Your shots will generate a pop
So come to see the rhyming glass
Which makes me look like such an a..
