what types of subjects are you wanting to work with? What lenses have you looked at so far?
You do have a tripod, right?

I would encourage you to spend the little more and get the nikon, I am pretty sure you will apreciate the quality and the images it renders. The sigma is no slouch either and you get slightly more working distance to your subject as Gordon alludes to, But as he also mentions, the 105 is TACK SHARP.
Looking forward to your images after you make your purchase.
