I agree with JimC about not needing the optical image stabilization in Sigma lenses.

BTW, the Tamron 55-200 and the Sony 55-200 are the same lens with a couple minor distinctions.
  1. The Sony SAL-55200/2 has it's own SAM AF motor, while the Tamron works off the AF motor in the camera body.
  2. The Tamron is cheaper and has a longer warranty.
