I'm another that doesn't have either lens, but seriously considered both (along with the DA*200 f2.8). I thought the biggest difference was weight and focusing systems. If I were shooting sports I'd most likely go with the Sigma. However, I don't and wouldn't particularly care about the faster focus (quieter would be nice, but not necessary). If I wanted a zoom, I'd opt for the Tamron because of the weight, which is huge for me. But I'd really like the DA*200 because it's lighter still, and I wouldn't necessarily need a zoom.
