The Minolta should be better by a nice margin. Unless Tamron have improved a lot lately they are mediocre at best.
If you can, also take a look at Sigma, especially their EX series.

Hi Patrick. I have the same camera as you and use the Minolta lens. Its not bad for the price but a little soft beyond 200mm, still good enough though.
Almost all my pictures on here are with the Minolta lens mentioned.
If you wanna have a browse with the results you can have a look at my pics here

I've used the Minolta one, and I agree with Martin that it gets a little soft towards long end, but the results are quite acceptable for a lens that price.
