used 70-200g v1 vs new Tamron 70-200 USD on A99

I have to replace my crop sensor Sigma 50-150 2.8 where I've moved to A99.

Contemplating getting a used Sony 70-200G v1 vs a new Tamron 70-200 USD.

I'll seem to be losing a focus limiter and AF-D with the Tamron, but I'd be gaining a newer focal design that is getting very good reviews, and a 6 year warranty.

Leaning toward the Tamron.
