I feel like 3rd party lens reviews are always very positive at first. Think tamron 24-70VC, and what a piece of junk that has turned out to be. I generally avoid 3rd party zooms.

I would go by not just web reviews but user reviews and anecdotes too, and you are right they don't favour third party manufacturers. The Tamron f2.8 seemed suspiciously short to me.
