Tamron or Sigma 17-50/2.8 stabilized
4 months ago

i want a better n faster normal zoom. i read some on this forum about these 2 and i'm about ready to buy one of them - used, probably from amazon or an outfit you guys like.

they seem close with dxo saying sigma by a nose, though i wonder if the extra chromatic aber of the sigma is a factor with my D60 over the tamron. also on amazon [maybe?] i read about focus being off with some sigmas of this breed.

oh about forgot flare - one of my grit my teeth issues with kit lens. so anyone know about either or both in this regard?

any info and recommendations appreciated.

thanks, steve
