Sigma 170-500 apo dg vs apo non dg

Hello fox~

I'm trying to buy Sigma 170-500 from local shop, and

They only have non DG version, but what I heard is it still comparable w/ dslr.


Is there any difference between them?

170-500 Apo DG vs NON Apo DG...

THANKS for in advance!

I don't know the image difference between those two lenses, but I have heard generally that lens is a bit soft. I went with the 150-500 and find it very good.
