It seems like they both are about equivalent overall, I mean there are differences, but it definitely varies person to person (how steady are you?).
Great post, thanks. Read the article and came to wonder, will the "Tamron AF18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC (Vibration Compensation) LD Aspherical (IF) Macro" lense work well with the Canon 500D ? (Came to think about this, that I read there's some special electronics inside the lense that "speaks" with the house).

When you buy the Tamron lense, do you have to choose which camera to use it with ? (in other words, are the build and electronics inside the lense different from i.e Sony to Canon ?)

Thanks and goodnight from Denmark (now 00:05 :-))!
