Which Macro? Tamron 60mm, Sigma 70mm DG, Sigma 90mm

Hey all,

Up until now I've been using Vivitar AF macro tubes but I'm really thinking about finally getting a dedicated macro lens.

I'm a little stuck between deciding which of the three for various reasons I'll list below, but I just wanted to get feedback on any users that have or do own and can compare.

I'm really interested in the Tamron 60mm it's gotten rave reviews and the wide f/2 is really appealing. However, the Sigma 70mm is DG and I kind of want to future proof my lenses, as I have a feeling in a few years I'll probably go to a full frame a99 from my a77. Then there's the 90mm Sigma it's got a little more range than I think I want, but they can be found for at least $100 less than what I pay for the other two. On

Dyxum all 3 are rated around the same area so those numbers only make my decision more difficult.

Hoping some experienced users here could chime in with their experience/opinions, I really could go in any direction without more information.
