Which is better the Sigma 105 2.8 Macro or the Tamron 90 2.8 Macro After the current rebate the Tamron is about $35.00 cheaper-looking for portrait with great bokeh.

I haven't actually used either one, but from what I've seen posted here, I think the Tamron is just a hair better/sharper. But the difference is tiny and could be partly due to the photographer, too. If it's also cheaper, go for it (and the focal length might be a hair better for portrait, too).

The 135 3.5 Takumar is sharper then the Tamron, But the bokeh is not a creamy smooth as the Tamron 90mm. The Sigma is a good lens also. But it all depends on what you want to soot.
