It depends on the particular lens. The less expensive third parties are often aiming for a lower price point and have slightly worse performance, but there are plenty of cases where a particular Sigma/Tamron/Tokina (or others, but those three are most common and have been around for decades) lens is better than a particular Canon/Nikon/Sony/Pentax. And a rare one that is very highly regarded and chosen by many as their first choice in a category. Then there are premium lenses, like Carl Zeiss. Different story completely.

I guess lenses will be another story for another time. Starting to learn photography as a hobby is like starting one giant research project for myself. Fun stuff. Just judging by prices, I think I can see where the word premium came from.
