Which macro lens better? Sigma 105 or Tamron 90?

Tamron all the way!

My vote is for the Tamron 90 f/2.8........I have an older model but the pictures it produces are phenomenal:

Two on one!

I've no doubt that the Sigma can produce excellent results like these but you're kinda playing russian roulette if you have an SLT...the older Sigma models are okay (though you have to make sure that the gears don't get stripped by the auto focus motor..that's what happened to me) but there might be a problem with the newer lenses due to the compatibility issue with the newest Sony cameras.
