@SithTracy -- I've seen reviews and comparisons of the Sigma and Canon go both ways, but the Canon tends to get slightly better marks overall. But in the value-per-dollar comparisons, most reviewers appear to like the Sigma, since it's close to half as much as the Canon.

Sorry, I probably was not clear. I was reading comparisons between the Tamron 17-50 and the Sigma 17-50.

Gotcha. I've seen a lot of those reviews too; reviewers appear to like the non-VC/OS Tamron better but prefer the image-stabilized Sigma.

Anyway, I'm not convinced that I'd be able to tell the difference among the various lenses in day-to-day shooting, and I'm pretty sure all of them will be a giant step up from the 17 - 85mm variable aperture Canon that I have.
