Tamron 200-500 vs Sigma 50-500

I was about to purchase the Sigma 50-500 when I discovered the Tamron 200-500. The Tamron 200-500 fits my needs better. It probably will not be used below 200. I already have the Sigma 150 macro and a TC 1.4. I know everyone is happy with the 50-500. How does the Tamron compare to the Sigma in build, auto focus and picture quality. Also, will the Sigma TC 1.4 work with the Tamron.
Thanks in advance.

Not many user of Tamron 200-500 in Nikon mount. Try search on the Canon lens forum. There are more user using the Tamon. I have the Tamron and I like it a lot. It is very difficult to handheld this lens with Tele 1.4x (~ 700mm).
