Tamron 70-300 is a very nice lens, as is the  Sony 18-135

Minolta's might be cheaper, but as good as they might be, they are old and often have severe color aberration and this gets annoying after a while. Often very disturbing despite of the sharpness and color.

Remember you have to be a bit lucky to have a good copy. (sharpness/dust/oil)

You can compare at this site

Select only lenses above 4.5 and you will be fine.
