Hi, I recently purchased a Canon XTi with a Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro Telephoto Zoom (I am a poor student starting a business and got a great deal on both) and I am in some dire need of some tips.

Which among the following 2 lens is better in terms of image sharpness and image quality.

[Feel free to move the thread if appropriate.] Let's not go into the story of how I came to own these two items yesterday, as it wasn't by choice and was a lengthy, painful and expensive experience. However, once they came into my possession I thought that I would attempt to make the best of a bad situation and try them out. Long story short, I put the extender onto the lens just to play with it, found focus and took a couple of test shots, then unscrewed the extender and tried to use the...
