I was looking at the Tamron 70-200mm F/2.8 Di SP LD (IF) do you think it would still work well with my camera? I know must prefer the VC but its a bit more expensive.

I have the Tamron 70-200 2.8 VC and it is brilliant. The non VC is not the same thing at all. I get clear images at 1/20th all day long with the VC. I purchased an open box sample off ebay and never regretted the purchase at all. I pinch pennies on other items, but this lens is golden in my mind.

This lens is a previous generation lens and performance is generally poorer than the VC. The Sigma is also an older design.

Do note that the VC is now also a previous generation lens - so you can try to wait a bit and prices may fall due to people trading in their old VCs for new G2 ones.
