Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a good walk-around lens for my t3i body. After some researches, I'm debating on getting either of the two lens. I'm leaning toward to the sigma since it is shorter and the image quality is little better according to the-digital-picture.com's test.
I would like to hear some voices from both lens' users. Any input is appreciated in advance.

I had a Sigma 18-125 OS and have to say it was a bit soft at anything over 100mm, however I did have a UV filter on it all the time. I've since stopped using UV filters after getting a 7D and realising how soft all my photos were. I'd already sold the Sigma by that time though, so couldn't check what it was like without the filter. Up to 100mm it was really good though and I love the Sigma OS system. I've since bought a Sigma 150-500 OS and thet is so sharp I decided to keep it and sell my Canon 100-400 L.

thanks for your input, I think I'll pull the trigger of Sigma. I've had similar experience of UV filter on a prime lens, the sharpness is better without the filter attached.
