I have to agree...I love spending DH's money.

Now I have it narrowed down to the Sigma 17-70mm or the Tamron 17-50mm.

My own experience with Sigma has not been very good. When I had got my Tamron, I had originally wanted the Sigma. Problem was, when trying out the Sigma I couldnt find one that focused correctly. I cant remember if it was back focusing or front focusing but each one I tried did it. Where as the Tamron was spot on. So I walked out with the Tamron.

The Tamron is a great lens. We usually shoot at Disney with 2 bodies - one typically has the Tokina 11-16 on it, the other the Tamron 17-50. The wider the better for shooting in Disney parks, IMO.
