This issue has been beaten to death at least a gazillion times on this forum! The general consensus is:
Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 = sharp and light, inexpensive

Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 VC = inferior IQ when comapred to the non-VC version, bigger, also inexpensive

Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 OS = sharp, rather pricy, fair corner performance, good OS, reversed zoom ring

Nikon 17-55mm f2.8 = Best IQ hands-down, expensive, large, no VR, weather sealed, built like a tank

Thanks for sharing those beautiful (& most importantly sharp) images. Thanks also for making short but to the point conclusions.

Keeping aside the Nikon's superiority, which one you will chose between Tamron (non-VC) and Sigma? Any opinion about the Tokina one?
