We have the Tamron too. Actually, we had two of them at one time. Sold one and the other is our backup. Both of them had to go in for warranty repair with AF issues. I have friends who have the Tamron and have had great luck with them, but my experience wasn't so great. One cool thing about the Sigma is you can update firmware using the docking station (sold separately). If Tamron needs a firmware update, it has to be shipped back to the factory. Which generally only happens when they are sent in for warranty repair as ours were. Both companies are Japanese owned, but Sigma assembles their lenses in their own factory in Japan and Tamron outsources the assembly of some their lenses (the 150-600 being among them) to a company in China. Just some food for thought.
