Having owned all three I would say go with Tamron, that's the only one I kept in the end. 50... much of its reputation comes from the times when a good used copy could be had for $50-60, at 120 it's nowhere near a bargain it once was. It is still pretty cheap considering what other canon lenses cost now, but its focus sucks and get progressively worse as it gets darker and I've never been happy with the results shot at less then 2.8.
