  Besides dpreview.com I always look for review at Popular Photography's web site. Here's the Tamron's review:

And here's the Sigma review if you are interested:

  Thank you Todd and Andy -- forgot about dpreview,used when first started photo "stuff". I do have the Sigma which is great, but so heavy a lens for me as a little old lady.
God Bless! Will check these out now.

  Well, am a little old lady pushing 65 years of age, five foot tall and 120 pounds. A bummer out here in the wild prairie land, old dog, old cats and new ferrel cats to feed, plus husband to attend to.
