    Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8... DX becomes tempting

    The first review of this new Sigma lens is out, and they seem to have been able to improve further on what they achieved with the 18-35mm f/1.8:

    With lenses like that, and in combination with the excellent DR and high ISO capabilities of the D5500, D7200 and D500, DX format cameras become very tempting with their relatively modest prices, small size and weight and increased reach compared to the FX equivalents.

    Jørgen, I concur - I'm looking closely at the D500.... just want to wait till any hitches get sorted out.

    The new Sigma lenses are terrific - but - I guess I would just miss VR in the 50-100mm f1.8 lens.

    I agree. I'll probably buy the lenses first, since I have several DX bodies.

    I'm interested in buying the 50-100mm f/1.8 too, to go with a D7200. It seems to be a great lens.
