IF I'm not wrong, both brands are of same build (glass), same manufacturer and same packaging, but different name. I can't really tell you which is better, but you do know that it's impossible to turn all the way to the maximum stop in broad daylight right? It will have a huge X across the image.

Crossing banding does not happen with this setup:
