Hope you guys find that somewhat useful...

I found this comparison between the Canon and Tamron to be more informative:

The Tamron has a huge price advantage over the Canon, as it is literally half the price.
The lens to avoid is the Sigma, as it is quite soft wide open.  I used to own one, and ended up always stopping down to least f/4.5 to get good results, and it was excellent at f/5.6   The Tamron is much better, and is razor sharp in the center at f/2.8
I'm really super happy with the Tamron.   It is a great people lens to take to events.
