    Ah, that was a little confusing; you prob meant: "own a Tamron 28-75 (nikon mount)", as I've seen your posted image before

    iirc nikon doesn't have a 28-75, only 28-70, so it gonna be tamron, especially in this case you are asking about tamron as well.

    For me, I wont go for third party brands. But you're not me.

    So... between the two, not considering the optical qualities of the two (which I have no idea about), I'd say that the 24mm on the Sigma is probably more useful than the 28mm on the Tamron. There's 5mm more on the Tamron on the tele end, but I will not miss it compared to the extra 4mm on the wide angle side.

    i will go for the 24-70. personally had the opportunity to use both the lens. the 24-70 is much better. in terms of optical quality and build.
    random equipment.

    I'll take the 24-70. Agree with brian that the 4mm on the wide end will be more useful than the extra 5mm on the tele end, especially if you're on a crop body. AF speed and accuracy goes to the Sigma over the Tamron.

    waa, cannot imaging focusing noise of the sigma... i find my tamron already pretty noisy(ok, not as noisy as AFD 80-200)
