Tamron vs Sigma

Greeting All

Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX DG $310
Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG $395

Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 Di XR $480

I have decided to get one of these and need some motivation ;-)
First by the IQ then by bung for the $. I must have f2.8 (or better) and then focal lenght of up to 135, are there any other choices. Max budget $550.oo

Thank you
andy

Well if you are going to get sigma then at least get the 24-70 it seems better than the 28-70. The sigmas are very big and heavy. Although I do like the feel of the focusing ring.

If I were you I would get the Tamron.

I'd also place my vote for the Tamron. Good build, sharp and great IQ. After 4 months with it, no complaints. You can get it for $350 on Ebay or other US online retailers almost any week and the exchange rate helps as well. Check Amazon:
