Hi all,

This question has been asked before but I don't think the Tamron USD was available yet. To the owner of either of these lenses, can you share your thoughts please?
Personally I like Tamron because I had a bad AF experience with the Sigma 15-70mm F2.8. But the Sigma HSM telephoto lens is a few hundred bucks cheaper than Tamron.

Thoughts?

Thanks../Ken

I have a Sony 70-200G but I ordered a Tamron 70-200 USD. The 70-200G is not tack sharp wide open. The Tammy looks better on Canon/Nikon and in addition to that it is weathersealed, which pairs better with my sealed body

Cheers

Martin
