I haven't got any Canon, but use a Sigma 70-300 with my Nikon D60...nice flexible lens with a great 200mm macro facility.
I've the Sigma 70-300mm APO F/4-5.6 "Macro" about 4 years old - Macro is a bit misleading as the closes focus distance is about 1M away.
Apart from that, its pretty good, value for money - its the last lens i want to update as the alternatives are big steps up in cost.
id go for the sigma
ive got the tammy, and its a little soft in the 280-300 range
I have just chopped in my Sigma 70 - 300 APO as part exchange on a Tamron SP 70 - 300 Di USM which had an on shelf cost of £320, twice as much as my old Siggy APO. I have to be honest and say that the difference I get for about £150 more is rather disappointing. Its not as sharp as the reviews make out but it is a slightly faster lens with quicker focus, however no Macro feature.......
just uploaded this to the gallery today...taken at 240mm with the Sigma's macro facility
heres a sample from the tamaron (on a d90)
300mm + macro
