Sigma 24-70 or Tamron 28-75??

There are lots of others out there, but let me know what you think of these two lenses first. Both are f2.8. The Sigma is the MACRO not the newer HSM version. Which gives the better IQ in general? Believe it or not, I'm one of the few(but there are some others) that find 28mm to be wide enough. So either would do just fine in that regard. If you have had experience with both, that would be fantastic. If you have strong feelings for either one, that would good, too. But PLEASE limit your comments to these specific lenses. I shoot with a Canon XS. Thanks much.
