I'm considering the following lesnes:

1) Tamron 90/2.8
2) Sigma 105/2.8
3) Sigma 150/2.8 HSM

I have the Nikon 60mm and the Sigma 150mm. I would recommend the Sigma for the following reasons:
Working Distance:
Sigma 150 7.75 inch
Sigma 105 4.7 inch
Tamron 3.3 inch
Nikon 2.9 inch
Sigma 150 HSM (AFS) fast focus with instant manual override, sweet.
Sigma 150 has Internal Focus and constant length, the others extend - yuck

Sigma 150 comes with a nice tripod foot, can detach without taking lens off the camera.

They are all sharp lenses and produce superb images.

In the spirit of Occam’s Razor one should embrace the less complicated formulation or simply put, less is more.
