glass for xti

Canon Rebel xti and I was happy with my Sigma kit (18x50 & 55x200), that is until I put a borrowed Canon lens on that puppy.  Images so crisp they remained so until 300% in ACR.  I loved it.

I use a tripod 95% of the time and mainly do mountain landscape and the occasional critter that jumps out of the woods.  I figure the range I had will work, maybe bump it up to 300mm, still using a pair of lenses.  I should point out that my pockets aren't that deep so be gentle with your advice. Used doesn't hurt my ego.

So, will Tamaron glass give that crisp image or do I have to stick with Canon, or ??

Check or

The tamron 17-50 f2.8 is very nice.   I've only used one for an afternoon and intend to buy one shortly.

The Tamron 55-200 gets nice reviews and looks to be better than the sigma 55-200 and canon 55-200 usm ii.  The canon 70-200 f4L is nice.  (I should sell mine.  edit: because I bought the 70-300 is.  not because the lens is a problem.)  The canon 70-300 IS is also nice.  (That's the 70-300.  Not the 75-300.  BIG BIG BIG difference.  Seems as good as my 70-200 through 200.  After that it kind of falls off but isn't bad.)
