F2.8 tele zoom lens to choose

f2.8 zoom lens to choose and finalize, help me out of this and suggest me please

I have been thinking about investing telezoom wwith f28 with a budget of $750

1) Tamron 70-200 f28 without VC - $750 but weight of 1400gms seems a big issue as I enjoy hand held shots except Night time. non-vc ok for Birds, low light etc ?

2) Tamron 70-200 f28 with VC - $1400 - cost and weight seem issue

3) Tokina 50-135 - f28 - $750/ I like the cost and weight, only 760 gms --what I dont get is the FL longer than 135

4) sigma 50-150mm f2.8 - $950 - again heavy weight is issue here

primes of 135 f2.8 and 200 f2.8 , somehow i don't enjoy prime length for long zooms, due to inconvenience of not being able to zoom when needed badly with fast moving Birds, surfers etc

I propose to use in T3i and Nex with AF adapter. thks for the help
