Default Sigma vs Tamron 150 600 help

I know many of you have one or the other so was looking for a little help.

I have been checking out forums and threads looking for all the info I can find. And it seems they are almost identical in the end. I have seen posts here where the Tamron can not us IS (I will call it this to save on confusion being a Canon guy) while panning side to side. And have seen posts where the Sigma may not lock on focus as accurately as the Tamron. I know the Sigma weighs more but are these only the real differences?

I will be using these on my 7D (eventually a 7D ll or 1DX I hope)


Any help or comments appreciated in advance.

Currently Tamron only makes one version of this lens, but will come out with a newer version of the same lens. The original Tamron lens is very good, and not as heavy as the Sigma Sport version. Tamron did install VC which is like Canon's IS, only a bit better. If you were to buy the older model, you may want to send it back to Tamron for a calibration to your specific body, and cleaning. It will be returned in about a week, and will focus faster since it will not have to hunt all the specs for your camera stats. Mine came back with a smoother zoom and focused in a split second. The new version will be able to be updated remotely using Tamrons computer connection. It will also have a new finish, and better weather protection. Remember, Tamron lenses are all warrantied for 6 years, to the original purchaser.
