Am trying to decide whether to go for the sigma or tamron 70-300mm lens for my d40 (could possibly stretch to the APO if it's been motorised yet) but need some advice from owners to help me make final decision

Many thanks to you all

Sid, looks as though both Sigma and Tamron now offer that lens with built-in focus motor.

Any idea which ones better though - and if anyone has any links to any reviews, or, even better some shots that they've taken with either of these lenses i'd be appreciative :love:

I recently purchased the Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG Macro Lens for my Nikon D40.
The lens has a Built in Motor Drive and does Auto Focus with no problem with the Nikon D40..D40X and D60..The lens does not have Image Stabilization however I have shot many very nice photos without a tripod and have not had much of a problem with blurred photos..

I purchased this lens from 47th Street Photo via Amazon.com, where I have also reviewed the lens and shared some of my photos..
