    In fact, a tamron is slightly better than his couterpart, Sigma but the local price for Sigma is more expensive than Tamron. However, it is the other way round in HK.

    yes, it is. but, its a little too sharp for portrait uses. 2 models i shot complained abt their facial flaws being magnified by the lens...
