This question already has an answer here:

I'm looking for a budget telephoto lens and I'm wondering which of these two is the better option. They have very similar specs:

Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras

Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras

This is for my Canon EOS XTi. Thank you!

Thanks, I'll have a look. –  Josh M. May 9 '11 at 17:36
I would splurge and get the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS, but that doesn't really answer your question. –  dpollitt May 9 '11 at 17:47
For what it's worth I have the Tamron and am very happy with it. It's not world-class but for the price they're going for at the moment you can't go far wrong. –  ElendilTheTall May 9 '11 at 21:37
@ElendilTheTall: Thanks. I did end up ordering the Tamron because the reviews seemed slightly better. –  Josh M. May 9 '11 at 21:47
