Hi guys,
I'm planning to buy a lens for my Nikon. Since I do a bit of portraits and sometimes wedding shoots I'm looking for a lens which is almost as good as Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 that allows lots of light in and is ideal for low light conditions and fast.

My problem is that I've very limited budget and I've to buy a flash as well. 24-70mm is too expensive for me at this stage, so I'm looking for the best nearest alternative.

- Is Sigma 17-70mm f2.8 the nearest alternative, that can produce near quality and is fast and soaks in lots of light?
-What are the main quality differences between the both lenses and why is the price difference so much? In London the former is selling for £700 and the latter for £280-£380

Cheers

have you considered the tamron 28-75/? from what I've read, it's a really nice lens and the price isn't scary either though it's slightly more than the sigma 17-70/2.8-4 (around here at least).

hmm i never thought about tamron. i thought that they are usually more expensive than sigma hence i was only looking for the latter ones.

but after reading your reply i saw the results of tamron 28-75 on www.pixel-peeper.com i'm impressed.

by the looks of it im assuming that tamron 28-75 is more closer to the results that of sigma 24-70.

i just checked, the price isnt that expensive for tamron. in uk its about £350-ish which is the same as sigma 17-70 but tamron 28-75 results look much more pleasing.

are there any drawback of tamron 28-75 how is it the same price as sigma 17-70. does it have any functionality defects or? can you comment on that.
