Which used lens for new T4i - Tamron 17-50 2.8 (non-VC) or Sigma 17-50 2.8 OS
Dec 31, 2012

I just replaced our XTi with a T4i. I'm debating which used lens to get. Right now, I've narrowed it down to two options.

Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 Aspherical XR Di II - $275

Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM - $450 (maybe $425)

The camera will be used for two things. Primary use will be for my wife's is a baking blog. We will also use it to photograph our 3 boys. (I hate using flash which is why I want a 2.8 lens vs the kit lens)

Seems like the Tamron is really good deal and everyone is happy with it. But I wonder if the OS would be handy with the Sigma.

Any thoughts on the better lens based on our usage and the prices above?

Thanks!

Canon EOS 650D (EOS Rebel T4i / EOS Kiss X6i)
