Hi all,

This question has been asked before but I don't think the Tamron USD was available yet. To the owner of either of these lenses, can you share your thoughts please?
Personally I like Tamron because I had a bad AF experience with the Sigma 15-70mm F2.8. But the Sigma HSM telephoto lens is a few hundred bucks cheaper than Tamron.



I have the Sigma 70-200mm HSM Macro, not the newer OS version, but it is an absolutely fantastic lens. I've heard the HSM OS is even better.

Haven't used the Tamron USD though so I can't tell you how the Sigmas stack up to it, I hear that is a very good lens.

I don't think you can really go wrong with either, so I would probably opt for the cheaper Sigma.
