Hi,

The 28-105 f2.8-4 from Sigma is a nice lens indeed.
It's fast enough in focus and the 2.8 really helps sometimes.

Greetings,
Frank

Frank,

how do you like the 90mm macro on the 10D? I've wondered how a macro lens would be on a dSLR with the mgnification facto and all?

The Tamron is AMAZING.
Look at this :



I have a few more on my website www.doorhof.nl.

If you can spend the money don't buy anything more expensive than the Tamron, it outscored the Sigma by a little and the Canon by a few procent, and it's the cheapest of the three, I believe only the Leica was tested better a while ago (costing 4x the ammount the Tamron retails for).

You can focus real close (a few cm's) but you have to manually set the lens to 1:1 otherwise it will hunt a bit, for macro's this rather normal I believe.

Greetings,
Frank
