one or two a long time ago); I've used Tamron lenses on both film and
digital and they are absolutely terrific. I currently have the 28-300,
the 19-35 and 24-135 and couldn't be more pleased with the results. I'm
looking to buy the 90mm portrait/macro after my funds start building
back up a bit ;-). I owned the "film" version of it about 18 years ago
and it was one of the best pieces of glass in my nal. You can't go
wrong with Tamron glass but as I said earlier, I haven't used Sigma in
many years but I was still more impressed with Tamron back then. Don't
really know what their [Sigma's] quality is like now.
By the way, all are currently being used on a Canon 20D.
