Sigma v. Tamron (18-300mm)

Assuming they cost the same (Sigma is about $100 less), which one would you purchase and why?

I have a Pentax K100D.

Probably neither as the zoom range is excessive, which typically means IQ problems at one end or another.

And, you should list specific lenses you refer to, unless you are asking about brands only, which is sort of nebulous :-)
