I have no experience with the Tamron except to say that my parents have this lens and are very satisfied.

Do you happen to know if the Tamron zoom ring rotates in the same direction as the Sigma?

To answer my own question - the Tamron is almost certain to use the opposite direction of the Sigma, with 250---135---18. I'm basing this on product shots of their other zoom lenses for various mounts - they seem to always have the wide end on the right.

I guess I'm getting the Tamron then
