I bought the d5100 with the 18-55 "kit" lens. I am looking to upgrade.
My choices are
Tamron AF 17-50mm F/2.8 SP XR Di II VC
and
Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM FLD

The Nikon isn't even in the running, as the price is, er, inappropriate. I can buy BOTH of the above, NEW, and have money left over from the purchase price of the Nikon.

What's the recommendation, now? Sigma or Tamron? And why?
