Tamron 75-300mm LD AF Macro or Tamron 70-300mm D or Sigma 70-300mm APO DG
My sister has been taking a photography class at highschool and just saved up and upgraded from her xt to a 30D. I asked her what she would like for christmas and she asked for a battery grip, eye peice extender, extension tubes set, and a lense or 2. I am giving her one of my nifty 50's and besides it she only has a 18-55 kit, 28-90 kit from a k2. I want to get her a decent tele zoom. I have a canon 75-300 but its so sloppy i would donate it to a thrift shop. After researching a bit here are the 3 I came up with in the sub $200 range. Can anyone help me make the decision. I have a few sigmas including a Big Ma. I have never held, much less shot with a tamron.( local shop only carries phoneix and quantaray) Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
These are the 3 I'm looking at for her.
Tamron 75-300mm f/4-5.6 LD AF Macro
Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro
Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD 1:2 Macro
I mentioned to my parents that we should split the cost 3 ways and get her a 100-400L like mine and needless to say that when they looked up the price that idea died quickly. I am also ordering her a canon back pack and 2 extra batteries from sterling. Our parents are going to get her a 430ex (buying mine off me. gonna get me a second 580) and I think they are also geting her CS3. So Atleast shes going to have a happy christmas morning right?
60D, 50 f/1.8 Metal Mount, 28-135 IS. Lost a 1D Mk III, and several L's in a home fire last summer.
