Well in that case you have only one choice... The Tamron 70-200mm F2.8
$729.95 @ B&H.

I agree on the Tamron, it get's excellent reviews and appears to be nearly as good IQ as the Sony, although it doesn't have SSM, it doesn't sound like that is a priority for your needs.

I would stay away from Sigma. You just never know if they'll work with your next camera.
