First off, sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum but after looking at some of the other "lens" forums, figures it fit here since I have an XTi that I will be putting them on.... if this is the wrong place, please move it to the correct forum....

I was just wondering what aftermarket lens my fellow Canon DSLR users prefer. Right now I'm partial to Sigma but what about Tamron or Tokina? The only reason I say I'm partial to Sigma is because that was the first aftermarket lens I bought and wanted to keep my lenses the same. I'm one of those type people that would like to buy all canon lenses since the camera is a canon just so everything matches and is "compatable" with out question. But when you can get a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 for $300 less than if canon partner, for example........ money talks.....

So..... Sigma, Tamron or Tokina..... which and why...... or doesn't matter?

Thanks for the input

IMO you can't generalize a brand to one another: It depends on each lens
-> The Sigma 70-200 f2.8 might be the best in this category (i.e. with the HSM for example)

But in the 17-50 f/2.8 the Tamron might be better and the Tokina is best at the super wide fisheye... so it varies with the lens really - sticking to just 1 brand (just like Canon) will lock you out from some better options! :O
