Sigma vs. Tamron

Hi kids,

I want to purchase a 28-300 for my every day walk around lens. I looked through the 3rd party database here at and didn't really find any answers.

Both Sigma and Tamron make one and seem to be very similar to this inquiring mind. The Sigma however is roughly $100 less. Any opinions out there?

Thanks to any replies,

lens info

I don't have that lens, but I do have two other Sigmas - 17-70 and a 24-135. I really like both of them. The 17-70 has warmer colors than the 24-135, but both are real sharp and take nice shots. You can always check at photodo, slrgear or photozone too.

Sigma treats me right, and their warranty when required is the best in the business.
That is as long as you buy the product in the country you live in. There are some questions on their International Warranty.
