Looking for new lens

I'm looking at purchasing a 70-200 lens (f2.8) I've heard mixed reviews on the Sigma end of things, and not sure about the Tamron side of things. Anyone have any comments on either ones of these lenses, or perhaps another alternative?

The IQ is about the same, handling of the sigma is better however, and the AF is faster/quieter.
