Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC HSM Macro for $407 at Amazon (Nikon mount)

Lens fans of the Nikon mount, who do not object to non-Nikon lenses might be interested in the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC HSM MACRO lens for $407 with free super saver shipping.

Not familiar with this mid-range lens? Be sure to check out its review at PhotoZone. The review is for the Canon flavor, but you can get a good idea since they are both made by Sigma.

And if you are not familiar with Sigma speak, DC means that the lens is designed for smaller sensored DSLRs, of the APS-C variety. HSM means hyper-sonic motor, which is Sigma's version of the new technology that allows faster and quieter auto-focusing. You may have heard of the terms used by other makers, such as USM (Canon), AF-S (Nikon), SDM (Pentax), SWM (Olympus), etc.
