haha I understand, but that won't happen, I have enough nice lenses to stay in the game. The sigma isn't soft enough that I'm ready to go out and buy a different copy or the tamron 17-50 f2.8, hell I show some of my friends some of the pictures I take with it and they want me to give them the file so they can make posters out of em, so it doesn't worry me too much. I'll just try to keep her in the sweet spot (f8 - f14) and if I ever start making money with photography I'll buy myself some nice nikkor glass

I absolutely think this is a horrible system. Use whatever aperture or ISO or 'x' setting to get the shot -- the technicals are far less important than the gravity of the final image. You can make an image sharper or more saturated, etc., but you can't go back in time if you miss it.

Yeah, you're right. It hasn't gotten in the way of anything yet, and it seems like the only people who notice are the ones that do this professionally anyways . I've been taking less shots and getting more and more keepers per outing since I've starting posting up on OCN for critique so I feel like overall my progress is upwards. On top of that, the last bunch I've posted in the rate my photo thread have all been highly rated. Most were taken with my siggy 18-50. Slightly soft or not, it is a good fast walk around lens. If I can ever break into pro photography, or at least start selling a few prints for money, my dream wide zoom is the nikkor 17-55 f2.8. Right now I'm saving up for the Sigma 10-20 though.
