I`ve just seen on Simply Electronics that they have a Sigma 150-500 available but also note that Tamron do a 200-500.I appreciate that there`s a 150 difference but just wondered what the general view was on the pros & cons of both if you had the chance of either.

I`ve checked the pervious topics but they relate to the 300mm lenses from what I can see.
