Hi Sarah,

I first bought the Tamron 28-105mm from Amazon for just $40 (a real bargain). I really like the lens.I posted a topic here andas a result, quite a few people ended up buying one. Then I bought the Minolta 100-300mm xi, for two reasons: it's compact and gives me the extra range. The problem is, its IQ is close to mediocre. It needs a lot of light and produces a lot of PF and CA. I recentlytook it with me along with the A300 and the Tammyon my vacation to San Diego and got some decent images from the Wild Life Animal Park. However, changing lenses in a place lake that was not fun.

As for your pictures, it appears to me that the 5D produced a sharper image but the Sony randered the colors better. I think both, the Tamron and the Sigma 28-105mm are very comparable (and capable)lenses.

A few more shots taken with this great lens (using it's macro capabilities)
