Sigma 55-200mm or Tamron 55-200mm
Nov 18, 2007

I am about to purchase a EOS 400D w/18-55 II Kit. As a second lens I am looking to but either of these two lens:

Sigma 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 DC

OR
Tamron 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Di II LD Macro AF

http://www.ephotozine.com/article/Tamron-55-200mm-f4-56-LD-Macro-Di-ll

I had a preference leading towards the Tamron, until I read it had a plastic mount.

Has anyone used these lenses or can you make a recommendation?
Thanks!
