Thanks for those. Those are nice shots. Tough decisions. Tamron is lighter and a little cheaper but Sigma has built in OS which helps stabilize the image in the viewfinder, but, reviews indicate that the OS of the Sigma cuts battery life in half and makes a lot of noise. The choice is not at all clear. I have time to think about it as I save my money. Thanks all for your input. I probably could be happy with either lens.

I realize it has been a long time (this thread is almost 12+ months old), so what did you finally buy?
