Tamron 17-50mm vs Sigma 18-50

OK question of the day. Anyone have any input on these 2 lenses? Seems like the Sigma is better for macro with a 7.9inch focal length while Tammy is over 10". Obviously Tamron is wider but any other advice on these 2 lenses that would persuade me in either direction?

Well if you have more money, take Tammy 17-50 and 90mm macro.. This make an amazing kit

It's always a dilemma choosing which lens to get, especially when money is tight. There's tons of reviews on these lens on the web, make sure and do your homework before choosing.
