  • Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    IQ, Tack sharp, good build quality, cost
    Slow AF, need to use manual/AF ring

    I just purchased this lens and found it to my liking. For its intended purpose (macro) it really shines.

    I found it to be the sharpest of the current crop of lenses I use. A quality lens to add to your collection indeed.

  • Tokina 12-24mm f/4 AT-X 124 AF PRO DX SD

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Solid, great feel, Fast internal focusing,
    not as sharp at 24mm

    Only had this lens for short time, but so far it meets my expectation for a wide angle zoom.

    Its heavy duty and built rock solid.

    Can't compare it to any other lens in this category as far as overall sharpness and image quality, but it seems to on par with other pro Nikon lenses I have for half the price.
