Anyone compared the Sigma to the Tamron equivalent?

Yes, we tried in the shop (which is quite bright by shop standards), then tried by the door, pointing out to the bright sunny car park. The improved focusing when fitted to the D200 verse the D80 suggests the cameras differing performance. None the less, for an f/2.8 optic it was slow, compared to some others 70-200 f/2.8 Nikkor or 105mm macro sigma for example....but not so when compared to an f/5.6 optic......It's all relative of course, and depends totally on usage. Not much else to choose from with this zoom range in 2.8 guise
