Re: 70-200mm Tamron USD or Signma HSM

FWIW I have two Sigmas on my A57 (18-50 and 70-300). No problems with AF or anything else. For what they cost they are VERY good lenses. The 70-300 I bought a few weeks back has a sticker on the box stating suitability for the SLTs, so I guess they've sorted their problems. I did actually return a Tamron 55-200 recently - the IQ was dreadful - but I think there was a fault with it, so I wouldn't draw any conclusions from that. I believe it's common practice for lenses being returned to be just sold on again by online sellers in particular...and that's what I had. I really try to only buy from shops now.
