Having seen the improvement in the quality of third party lenses since the 70's, I quite agree. My first 3rd party was a Soligor 35-105 back in '78 or so. What a clunker that lens was! Finally jammed in between normal and macro mode, so it was retired a tad early. (Out of warranty of course).
Bottom line is to shop wisely and read reviews. (And get advice here of course!)
