What are your thoughts on non OEM lenses?

So if you have a Nikon camera, would you consider using a NON Nikon lens on it?

I have heard mixed reviews. Some say stick with manufacture others say unless you super super pro, you won't notice the difference.

So what do you think?

I have owned a few Sigma lenses over the years and have been happy with them

How did the Sigma lenses compare to OEM? How is the movement, does it feel tight or loose?

I like them, they are good quality lens and I've had no problems with them. I do believe the Nikon lenses to have a tighter feel to them. Great way to save a few bucks on cost.
