Can't make up my mind.

Trying to decide between 3 walk around lens with more zoom. So far I'm trying to decide between the sigma 24-135mm 2.8, and the tamron 28-200 XR & 28-300 LD.. I was going to go for the pentax 50-200mm, but after going out shooting yesterday. I had just switched from my 135mm, to the 28mm.. And I missed zooming in on the seagulls flying around. So the 50-200 is not out, but I'd rather hold off and go for one of the 3.

Out of the 3 which one will be the sharpest and have good IQ? I'm liking the 24-135 because it's 2.8. But is it going to be enough zoom? Any of you guys own any of these lenses?

Can't offer any real comments on the three that you have placed under consideration. However, the Tamron 18-200/3.5-6.3 has really caught my eye for use as a travel lens. I'm about this far (holding up thumb and index finger about 1/4 inch away from each other) from getting this puppy. Kinda slow, expecially at the long end, but might be good enough as an outdoor travel lens.
