Canon 55-250 IS if a kit-like tele zoom is what you're after. The ones you list are for full frame and your camera is a crop sensor, no point in lugging the extra weight at such quality glass.

 

If you were looking at a 70-200 L zoom I'd say otherwise, but looking at those... Go with the Canon.

Well.. As macro as a kit tele gets. Focusing distance is 1.1m, so you can do some sort of macro. I've used it with mixed results, but it generally is half alright.

 

The Sigma does get you twice as close - but apparently its magnification is smaller than that of the Canon even if it can be focused closer.

 

I can't speak for the Sigma or the Tamron other than second hand experience hearing complaints about really poor AF performance that only gets worse in low contrast or low light conditions, but I own the Canon and it is a very adequate lens by all metrics. Center sharpness is reasonably good even wide open, corners are moderately soft but improve quickly and the image stabilisation works an absolute charm (IMO the IS alone is the reason why you should go with the Canon instead).

 

Having a much better autofocus is just icing on the cake really.
