I have narrowed my lens choice down to the Tamron 24-135/3.5-5.6 as a leave
on the camera lens.
I was about to buy and then noticed the Sigma 24-135/2.8-4.5 which excited
me as on paper it appears to be faster and overcomes the comments that the
Tamron was a little slow.
Then I looked at the prices. The Sigma is significantly cheaper than the
Tamron ($350 vs $400) and the reviews are not as good as for the Tamron.
Everyone has said that with lenses, you get what you pay for. Has Sigma
sacrificed optical quality for speed?
If I buy the Tamron, in low light ,will I be sorry that I dont have the
Sigma or will the picture quality in all other situations make up for this?
