POLL: 3rd Party Lenses
This is just an ongoing debate that I've seen elsewhere and I'd like to see the forums' opinions on this.
What do you think about lenses made by third-party companies, such as Tamron, Sigma, Tokina, etc.?  Some people swear by Nikon/Canon/Pentax/etc. lenses and think that buying anything else is a sin.  Others believe that third-party lenses offer comparable (or even better) performance and quality, sometimes at a fraction of the price.
I am personally indifferent.  My Nikon lenses have been very good to me, even though the ones I have (18-55/55-200 AF-S DX, and 50/1.8 AF-D) are considered entry-level.  My one third-party lens, a Tokina 12-24/4, has been holding up and performing just as well.
Let's see your opinions on this.
