At last I narrowed my choise on one of these lenses as a primary "working horse" thanks to your ppl, help with links ( http://www.fredmiranda.com).

They are pretty comparable in specs. and price, and besides the personal preference to single brand , which one would you reccommend?

I got the impression that Quality control of Tamron is questionable , means that it's rather a lottery to get a good or extremly bad exemplar of the lens. If I were in USA it's not a problem to oreder and send back several times, unfortunatly for me... I can't bet. I have to get a good lens from the begining ( my cousine brings me one from online shopping from USA, cannot check, trouble to return...). Considering this whad should I choose?

Replies are very wellcomed.

My sigma is my new best friend. I have not used the tamron but i really like the Sigma very much and the speed of the focus is awesome.

I'm not sure if Tamron's QC is any better or worse than Sigma, I've seen people write about isolated incidents of both as well as very expensive Canons having to be sent back or sent for warranty service, so there is no guarantee.

I can tell you that I have had the Tamron 28-75 and taken thousands of photos with it and I have been very happy with its performance. I really don't know of anyone who has not beenpleased with this lens.
